9/14/2020 - Kerry Gunderman
My father, Jim Gunderman, went to work for the Chipmans in the early 60’s. He worked at the Greenville Drive-In for 20+ years. He also worked at the Ionia Drive-In, and the Belding Theater/Roller rink. It was a big part of my entire childhood. We spent many a weekend there cleaning up trash, collecting and repairing speakers, etc.

It was also a big playground. When we were done working, we would ride our mini bikes and go-carts on the property. Once we started driving, it was a great place to “socialize. ” There is not a feeling I have ever experienced in my life, quite like getting to the Drive-In before dusk and anticipating the start of the movies.

It was always magical, no matter how old I was.
