Blue Sky Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Blue Sky Drive-In opened in 1948, around the same time as two other area drive-ins, the Walled Lake (better known as the Walake) and the Pontiac. Initially operated by Northeast Drive-In Theatre Corp., the Blue Sky later became part of the National Amusements chain. It originally had space for around 700 cars.

The Blue Sky was demolished in 1989 to make way for the Showcase Cinemas Auburn Hills megaplex, which, in turn, closed in 2002, due to competition from the new Star Theatres Great Lakes Crossing 25, also in Auburn Hills.

The Blue Sky was operated by Arthur and Roger Robinson from 1948 until 1965. Sumner Redstone and his Northeast Theatre Corp. (National Amusements) came to Michigan in 1964, acquiring the Miracle Mile, Waterford and Pontiac drive-ins. They took over the Blue Sky in 1965 and owned it until it’s closure in 1987.

Also, the Walled Lake (E. Lake Dr. 1945-50) and the Walake (Maple Rd. 1956-86) were two different drive-ins.
