Previous Names: Olympic Drive-In
This drive-in opened July 3, 1962 as the Olympic Drive-In in Pagedale and had a 400 car capacity. It was soon screening ‘racy’ film fare and was renamed renamed Rock Road Drive-In on May 27, 1977 when Wehrenberg Theatres took it over. It eventually began running porn movies. They had to install a large screen around the drive-in and it was drapped in a black vinyl material so that the screen couldn’t be seen from the Rock Road. There were constant battles between the drive-in owners and the city of Pagedale over violations because of the films that were being run. They would make inspections of the facility and cite them for the least of irregularities.
It was closed in 1980 and is now a junk yard, but the large marquee with the giant Olympic torch facing the Rock Road survived until around 2017.
