I grew up watching movies at the '100 Twin' Drive-In just off 694 in Fridley. Here in St. Cloud it was the '10 Hi' Drive-In (off Highway 10 where Mies Outland is today) -- both are long gone. At their peak nearly 80 existed across Minnesota, but that number has shrunk to just six. Here's where to find them.
