Click here for an interactive 1953 aerial photo of the drive-in (zoom in or out, or compare to older or newer photos of the same site). Note the baseball field to the south; this was Wilmington Park, where the minor-league Wilmington Blue Rocks played from 1940-52. Team owner Robert Carpenter Jr. founded the Kerry, which was leased to Philadelphia-based Ellis Theatres in 1958.
