Honor, Michigan: Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theater

Classic drive-in movie theater using much of the original equipment installed in 1953. Sez: "We will never play any movie stronger than PG-13 or any movie that glorifies teen drinking or drug use." Fiberglass statues and a giant snack bar hot dog out front for photo-ops.

A 1950s vintage movie drive-in for family fun with several large curiosities in the front including a fiberglass cow pulling an Amish buggy, an 8-foot fiberglass rooster, and a giant "fabulous" hot dog on the wall.

1950's Cherry Bowl Drive-In

A 1950s Drive-In that was actually in service in the 1950s. They play nothing rated over pg-13, so it is totally family friendly, and the snacks are good and low priced compared to a regular movie theater. Tickets are cheap and kids get in free for a double feature!!
