Brief history of the property.

The Keno Drive-in Theater was located in Pleasant Prairie, WI. It opened to the public on May 18, 1949 during a time of great growth among drive-in theaters through out the state. It held around 850 cars and served the Kenosha and surrounding area until it closed forever on November 9, 2014. One of the claims of activity are just some strange sensations of being watched or not being alone. That in of itself does not mean a place is haunted. BCP Founder Charles Bruss is also a drive-in theater historian and wanted to see if any activity would occur during a solo investigation of the property on October 9, 2014.

 
During the investigation we used the following pieces of equipment:
(1) voice recorders
(1) SB-7 Spirit Box with speaker
(1) Mel Meters
(1) full spectrum still camera
Please listen with head phones for the best results.
 

All evp’s are subjective and you may form your own opinions on what is being said. But it is our belief that we put forth here to what we feel is being said.


Also note: The SB7 Spirit Box is a great compact tool for attempting communication with paranormal entities. It uses both AM and FM radio frequency sweeps to generate white noise which theories suggest give some entities the energy they need to be heard. When this occurs you will sometimes hear voices or sounds coming through the static in an attempt to communicate. The static sound you hear during some of these recordings is from a device we use called the SB-7 Spirit Box. A modified radio device that scans the radio frequencies at a high rate of speed for what we believe to be spirit voices. In theory spirits can speak through the radio waves in the electromagnetic spectrum. So if a spirit voice does come through, it is virtually impossible for it to be a voice coming from a radio station as it sweeps by. Dozens of radio stations frequencies are past by in a matter of a few seconds

Charles asks if the Pleasant Prairie police officer that committed suicide is here to give his full name – At 14 seconds, a female spirit replies with, "Eric."....On January 6, 2006, Pleasant Prairie police officer, Eric C. Feifer commited suicide in his patrol car using his service revolver. He did this on the lot of the Keno Drive-in Theater. Charles purposely didn't use his name to see if he could obtain the correct response. Mr. Feifer's name is used here because it is public record. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends.

At about 3 seconds, a female spirit says, "Turn it off." Charles repeats what he heard by asking, “Did you say turn it off?” It is followed by a male spirit saying, “Noise,” clearly at 8 seconds. This can only be inferred to mean the loud static noise produced by the SB7 Spirit Box during the session.
