rancher--there hasn't been a showhouse in Baker since we have lived here. The Drive-In did run for a couple of years and then someone bought the land and put a big shop there.
Speaking of which, I worked at the Showhouse and the Drive-In when I was going to school in Buffalo, Wyoming. It was a lot of fun. The man that owned them both was a Jew, Sam Rosenthal, who owned a lot of property in Buffalo. Very interesting man. I learned alot from him. He had a little different perspective on things than what I had learned up to that time.
Gosh, the Drive-In. Used to have $1.00 a car night. Of course, we would pile all the kids we could in the cars and go to the show. I can't imagine growing up without a Drive-In.
On one occasion, we went to the Drive-In when our daughter was small. She sat with my mother in her car. I don't remember the name of the show, but there were some scenes that weren't for kids. In talking about it later, our daughter--maybe 4 at the time--said "I didn't like that show because Grammy covered up my eyes in all the good parts!"
