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.

Here is a 1968 aerial photo. Drive-ins.com has this theater in Sharonville, which I guess is a suburb of Cincinnati.

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.

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!!!
