On Friday March 28, 2014, a power transformer at the theater blew up about 7:00 PM. It knocked the power out not only for the theater, but also for 1400 other customers of P.U.D. # 3. They finally got the power back on at 2:30 in the morning. So unfortunately the theater was unable to open that night due to the lack of power.

On the post “Drive-In Theatre Preservation Society on September 1, 2015 at 6:50 pm”, they need to update their URL.

The current one (as of 3/15/2019) is https://www.thedriveinguys.com/.

I drove past the Skyline a couple of days ago and the totem pole is now gone. :(

Opening for this season is delayed due to coronavirus. They think they will open in late April.

Now re-opening for the season today under Governor Jay Inslee’s “Phase 2” coronavirus guidelines.
