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.

To answer your question 54, the current address for this theater is now 101 Conewago Creek Rd, Manchester, PA 17345. This points to the entrance of the drive in. The property is now part of IAA Vehicle Purchasing, an auto auction business on Susquehanna Trail.
