Two West Michigan Drive-In Theaters for Sale for $449K [PHOTOS]
Drive-in movie theaters have been a big hit during the pandemic. Well, here's your chance to own two in West Michigan!
According to DriveInMovie.com, 5 Mile Drive-in in Dowagiac and Sunset Drive-in in Hartford are on the market for $449,000. The owners prefer to sell the theaters together.
Both are single screen drive-ins and have been in operation for more than 60 years! The 5 Mile Drive-in opened in 1961 and Sunset Drive-In opened in 1948.
According to the listing, 5 Mile Drive-In can accommodate up to 500 cars and Sunset Drive-In up to 300. The current owners operate the theaters May through September. Both facilities offer concessions.
It's suggested that new ownership could create additional income by adding other events throughout like live music and concerts and utilizing the land for things like car shows, fairs, or other events that need parking. This particular site lists the price as "undisclosed", however another real estate website lists the properties for $449,000. It also mentions that "ticket booth, small concessions building and storage building for maintenance supplies" are included in the sale, and the owners' reason for selling is they are "too busy with 'day job' to run theaters also."
