                           ki-Hi Drive-In will turn off the lights on Sept.
                           24 for the season and possibly forever.
                             Kerasotes Theatres purchased the 500 car drive-
                           in earlier this summer from a company who
                           leased to Teicher Theaters for three years. Kera-
                   sotes would not renew Teicher’s lease, which expires on
                   Sept. 30, owner of Teicher Theaters Alan Teicher said.
                    “I heard from my prior landlord that Kerasotes is tear-
                   ing the theater down,” Teicher said.
                    There are rumors that a truck stop will be built in
                   place of the drive-in, he said.
                    But Kerasotes Theatres has not made any decisions
                   about the property, president and CEO Tony Kera-
                   sotes, said.
