WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Back in the 1950s, a tornado wiped away the screen at the Lake Park Drive-In Theatre in this northwestern North Dakota city.
The venue closed for repairs, a “Gone With the Wind” sign on the canopy eliciting rueful chuckles from patrons.
Being a romantic, it was only natural that Cottage Grove mailman Jim Hunter decided to propose to his wife at the site of their first date — the Cottage View Drive-In.
“He tends to go overboard though,” Michele Hunter said last week, as she recalled Jim’s announcement on the drive-in speaker system. “I heard Bryan Adams singing our song ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,’ then a man’s voice saying he wanted to create a memory with his girlfriend and asking me to marry him.”
