The old sign for the long-gone Hillcrest Drive-In Theatre now stands in front of the abandoned Hillcrest School on Tillman Road, on the south side of Fort Wayne. When I was a kid, my dad had a Chevy Malibu convertible that we would take to the Hillcrest Drive-In to watch movies. I can't remember when the drive-in closed, but I think that I was pretty young, before I was in high school

The drive-in was across the street from the school, and the sign was purchased by the school building's owner several years after the theatre closed. He had the sign moved across to his property, and used it as a sign for a toy store that he briefly operated in the old school.

I made this photograph last week.
