Do you remember the 82nd Street Drive-In?
Around the country, bowling alleys, skating rinks and drive-in movie theaters have been closing as real estate prices have made the land under them more valuable for modern retail and housing projects.
OPB is producing a web series on these "Lost Oregon Hangouts." One of the destinations we're focusing on is an old drive in theater in Portland—the 82nd Street Drive-In that ran from 1948 until 1985.
Did you used to hang out there? What movie do you remember seeing? Do you have a memory about the movie or experience of going there?
Are you unemployed? How does your age affect your job hunt?
Do you fish for smelt in Oregon?
Do you have stories about working on the homefront during World War II?
