General Information:

Source: Patricia Clements

My name is Patricia Clements, daughter of the original owner, Torchy Clements. You cannot imagine how pleased I am to see the Hi-Way Drive In open. I was four years old when the drive in opened and spent a good part of my life there until it was sold in 1968. Some of that time was watching movies and fireworks, and some was pulling weeds from the flower beds in front, checking the speakers, and when I was older, manning the ticket booth. I loved it.

I remember Mr. Davis running the projection booth, but Daddy never allowed us kids in there. The video above was the first time I ever saw the equipment! I love the sound system the projectionist devised; very smart. I was visiting Deckerville in August, 2012 for Homecoming and our casual 50 year class reunion and noticed the drive in operating, and again up to Deckerville in August of 2013. Still there, going strong. I wish for good fortune to the current owners.

Just took my family here this past Saturday. What a wonderful experience. I encourage everyone to go to this Drive-In. we drove 1 hour and 20 minutes each way and it was well worth the memories. We hop that Hi-Way Drive-In remains open so we can enjoy movies for the next few summers to come, while our child is still young and enjoys things that we used to enjoy in our childhood. Thank you Hi-Way Drive-in!!.
