Beautiful themed drive in with a “pirate” theme.

“Pirates of the Carribean” would have felt right at home at this theatre.

Used to sneak into Jolly Roger…without a car! We’d have Dad drop us off at the nearby roller skating rink, then dash across I-75 and sneak through the woods and into the Drive-In. Then, we’d look for single young ladies with a car. When entering the NORMAL way, with a car, you’d drive through a little castle-style building where you would pay. That little castle survived the demolition of the Drive-In for a few years; it was easily visible from the highway. Then, it too disappeared, ending all traces of this delightfully themed theater. YARRRGH!!!

Why is there no meation of a Jolly Roger Theater in Kettering, Ohio? It was on the south side of E. David Road.

I want to say that for a brief time, this drive-in reopened in the early ‘80’s as the “Captain Kidd” or “Captain Blood,” maybe for only a summer. If it wasn’t this location, it had to be nearby.

Now UPS Customer Center. Approx. address for this drive-in was 2051 East Kemper Road. Canal Rd. is the driveway, Frankfort Rd. is where the box office was located.

To clarify….Jolly Roger Drive In was in Cincinnati. the Capital Kidd, which had a lot of local resistance to opening was in Dayton. Both owned by Levin Services.
