Ford-Wyoming Drive-In in Dearborn (WDIV)

Ford-Wyoming Drive-In served cease-and-desist order while showing movies

The Ford-Wyoming Drive-in in Dearborn now expects to remain closed until June 12 after trying to reopen on Thursday night.

The drive-in says it was served a cease-and-desist order from law enforcement when it was showing movies early Friday morning. Michigan’s stay-at-home order has been extended until June 12, but it appears the drive-in did not know this and thought the stay-at-home order would expire at midnight, allowing them to operate.
