Dick Wiley, owner of the Wheel-In Motor Movie and the Uptown
Theater in Port Townsend, Washington passed away last night of
heart failure. I first met Dick in 2000 on my drive-in road trips. He was a grand showman and his theaters were spotless.
The Wheel-In is the best preserved drive-in on the west coast.
Dick was 'old school' and set in his ways. But he was always kind to me which I appreciate. I'm not sure what this means for
the theaters, I would hate to see them shut down. When I get more information, I'll let you know... RIP Dick
