Hey there, movie lovers and dream chasers! Have you ever fantasized about owning a piece of nostalgic cinematic history? Well, here’s your golden ticket!

Sadly what was once a staple of summer nights across the country is fading away. Heading to the drive-in with your family was a part of growing up for many of us, and now it's teetering on becoming a thing of the past.

Today, there are only 300 drive-in movie theaters left in the United States. That's a huge drop from some 4000 theaters that spanned the U.S. in the 1950s when they were all the rage. Until recently, Michigan 8 drive-in theaters still operating, but that number has now been reduced by 2 unless someone can sweep in to save the day.

For less than $350K, you can become the proud owner of not one, but TWO iconic drive-in theaters in Michigan. That’s right – the magic of the silver screen, under the stars, could be yours. Now the theaters are being sold separately, but that's is heck of a price to score both if you think about it.

Both the Sunset Theater in Hartford and the 5-Mile Drive-in in Dowagiac are closed for good and on the market. Both have been a huge part of their communities for years, with the 5-Mile Drive-in being part of history for 62 years. Both theaters are owned by the same family who announced the closures and sales on Facebook.

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of 5 Mile Drive-In theater this summer. As a family-owned establishment, our operations are deeply intertwined with the well-being of our own family members. Unforeseen health challenges within our family require us to take a step back at this time. In light of this, both 5 Mile Drive-In and its sister theater Sunset Drive-In are available for sale."
Sunset Theater in Hartford is currently offered for $119,900 and 5-Mile Drive-in for $199,900. Both come with concession building and equipment including a new projector and electronic equipment at both locations. The properties are listed with Cressy & Everett Real Estate. 
This is more than a business opportunity; it’s a chance to be part of something truly special. To own a drive-in is to own a slice of true culture, a beacon of nostalgia, and a part of small-town America.
