The back row of the Sky-Vu is often used by the local Amish who come with their horse and buggies and listen to the sound on portable radios.

Carmike Closed this drive-in when they took over Digiplex. They weren’t interested in the drive-in.

Carmike will probably put a proviso in the sale agreement to never allow this to be a theater again.

Too bad this drive in is closed. I loved that it was small & concession stand was inexpensive. The location is a plus even though I had to drive 1 hour. It was well worth it. It’s a great place to watch a movie. I’d go see reruns not in digital just to enjoy the experience again. I hope someone will save it.

Update from FB..

Thank you for sharing the page and helping spread the word that the drive in will opening soon. Next week the digital projector arrives and Pepsi will be there to do the install. Today Ruth Hafer did some painting. We’re getting things ready. We had the first step completed for the screen repair and we had stone brought in for the road into the drive in. Almost time for movies under the stars again. Tim and Renate Neal
