Originally began life as a drive-in theatre. It was later an adult theatre, which continues today, now using another part of the facility (the drive-in section is now closed).

“mikethesnipe,” since you “drove past this place but didn’t go in,” how do we know that the address is correct? Were you driving with one hand and writing the address down with the other? And if you had known definitely whether the place was “gay or straight,” would you have gone in?

‘warrenthewimp’ feel free to verify the address of Theatair X. You will find that the address is accurate. Unlike the incorrect addresses given on many theatre listings by you fella; this address is correct. I do not patronize porn theatres. I also do not discriminate against them as you do. haha

I grew up in Jeffersonville and passed this site frequently. This was in fact a former drive in movie theater. In the late 1970’s, the owners converted the venue to a adult movie theater and opened an adult bookstore in the former snack bar. Local civic leaders did bring obscenity charges and frequently tried to close the place. At one point, the property was surrounded by a 25' privacy fence to keep the presentations and viewers, private.

The growth of Clarksville, Jeffersonville, and Sellersburg on all sides of it would have doomed this venue regardless of what it was showing. The vicious nature of small town politics, only adds to the manner in which it was apparently taken by immenent domain.

Not sure if this theater will still exist in a few years or not, but if it must be known it does have two screens showing pornographic material 24/ 7, I was one of the first of my group of friends to turn 18 and was, well put up to the task of checking it out and giving them the inside scoop. Two screens, maybe 60 seats each, and sticky floors. You wont be gettin' popcorn in this theater, but hey if thats your thing, it don’t bother me.

THIS THEATER IS STILL OPEN, maybe not the drive in part. But yes it is open, and the did not make the on ramp there. Nor are they going too. They built an on and off ramp on the other side of the road.

Hello all,

I am doing a large-scale research project on adult theatres and would be very interested to hear from anything who either worked at or attended this theatre during its time showing adult films. If you would like to help me out, you can email me at .

Thanks!

There was a Lakewood Drive-In in Jeffersonville Indiana, that does not have a Cinema Treasures page. Is it possible that it was this theater first? There are images of posters and tickets on a Clark County Facebook page I can post here, if it is indeed the same. If not, should I add Lakewood Drive-In as a theater?

The address is correct. The Lakewood was always the Lakewood. Originally this was the Twin Drive-In. The western screen was demolished when I-65 was constructed.

Correction: It was originally Theatair. Then the Twin. Sat idle for a few years … then Theatair X. I’m including an ad from 1951.
