The Airport Drive-In was one of the many Upper Ohio Valley drive-ins along the Ohio River. Located right on the Brooke-Ohio County line, the Airport Drive-In received its name from the nearby Wheeling-Ohio County Airport.

The theater was located along West Virginia 7 between Short Creek and Stone Shannon Roads. The lot has been leveled and paved and is now home to some sort of light industrial business. It’s hard to tell from Google Street View, but it appears that a heavily damaged screen is still standing with its back facing Short Creek Road.

Looks like Hwy 7 is in Ohio, across the river. Do you mean Hwy 2 instead? If you put the following address into the address bar, it’ll pop right onto the location.

You’re right. I don’t know what I was thinking. I couldn’t find an address on WV 2, but if that one works, might as well have that one listed.

Google Street View from October of 2016 shows the screen, what’s left of it, quite visible. It’s pretty much a skeleton but does have a few white panels left.
