I attended this theater a few times before it closed in 1986. Like an idiot I failed to take photos of it then. By the time it occurred to me to do so, it was an empty lot. Fortunately we did dig up one photo of the marquee which is below. Like many drive-ins, the Walake was featuring "Hard R" exploitation movies in the early 1980's. Interestingly, the mentions in the newspapers in the few years before it closed in 1986 were using "Walled Lake Drive-In", which in reality was an older DI right across the street from Walled Lake itself. There was a haunted house attraction running at the Walake at the end also.
