One of the "coolest" drive-ins in the Cleveland Metro area

UPDATE 09/06 : The gorgeous art-deco Miles Drive-In in Cleveland has been torn down. It stood dormant for years but was razed this past August. This style of drive-in is the most sought-out, yet the rarest to find (let alone operating). Many thanks to Mark Hackett for update. 09-06
UPDATE 01/07 : The Miles Drive-In in Cleveland, Ohio was located less than a mile from my house, and I got many chances to wander around there at various times of the year.
