Miss the wet T shirt nights which occured on top of the concessions. Sure drew a crowd when they had one.

I was there the final Saturday night. Boy did the place fill fast when word got around that it was the last show. Cars were parked up against the fence and many turned away. I bet they had second thoughts about closing after that crowd showed up.

Ken, the glassed in area is a small stage for services or performances. It wasn’t much of a drive-in, the picture was projected with a VHS outfit at 4 x 3 and not film. It never had cinemescope. Last I heard someone wanted to re-zone the place to commercial so possibly movies will show again. As a church drive-in, there were no property taxes.

Sorry Chuck, but that newspaper photo is of the Sky on the south side of Adrian when it was falling apart. There are no known photos of the Lenawee available, I’ve looked. I could draw it from memory but hopefully will find some pictures, somewhere, someday.

The second screen was added to the Lenawee in 1978, I believe I saw the first movie shown on it. It was smaller than the main screen, maybe 20 x 40'. Radio sound along with the regular speakers came with the second screen.
