Correct street name is Conewago Creek Road. This little drive-in became infamous in the 1970s and 80s for screening XXX fare 365 nights a year. On Saturday nights traffic would back up all the way to I-83. A Saturday night robbery in the early 1980s resulted in the shooting death of a woman working the ticket booth.

A storm blew the screen down thus ending it’s long run of pornogrpahic films

While the good people of Strinestown may have fervently prayed that a strong wind causing the old wooden screen to collapse(an act of God, perhaps?) would put an end to the drive-in, it didn’t. The screen was replaced and the drive-in stayed in business at least another decade.
