For a while in the 80’s (maybe the 70’s as well) they showed porn movies. imagine flying in on final to Wright Patt and seeing porn on a drive in screen!I’m surprise there weren’t more accidents. In the late 80’s they went back to showing first run movies. We drove up there in 89 or 90 to see “ Sister Act”.

I worked a week here in ‘84 to give the manager a vacation. The theatre was known during its porn days as “Skyporn” drive in within the industry locals.

This theatre did not reopen for the 2016 season. Venturing a guess that it is closed as other Google searches returned articles about the property being for sale.
