50sSNIPES commented about Sky Aire Drive-In on Sep 26, 2022 at 3:41 pm

Demolished in the mid-1980s to make way for a neighborhood, one of the roads was dedicated to the old Sky Aire, which the theater probably opened in the early 1950s. A 1955 aerial shows that the theater was shown in its entirety.

The Sky Vue looks like it opened during the final quarter of the 1950s and closed around the latter half of the 1980s.

This appears that it opened in the 1960s and was demolished in the mid-1980s.

The Dragon Drive-In opened in the early 1950s, and may’ve closed in the late 1970s.

50sSNIPES commented about Highway 64 Drive-In on Sep 24, 2022 at 4:23 pm

So it might be closed in the late 1980s or early 1990s.

Demolished in the 1980s due to a second lane being constructed on the former screen’s site.

The Twilight Drive-In closed in 1979 and was demolished immediately afterward. The Walmart that was located in the theater’s spot opened on July 25, 1980.

50sSNIPES commented about Skyline Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 3:16 pm

It originally had 67 cars when it opened in 1952, but it expanded to either 175 or 200 cars in 1956. A 1951 aerial view shows the theater under construction, and a 1955 aerial view shows the construction of the extended traces.

50sSNIPES commented about Skyline Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 2:59 pm

It appears that it opened in either 1953 or 1954, and was gone in the 1980s. Stacey Lane wasn’t even extended until after the demolition of the Skyline, as the closest address to the entrance was located on 6380 KY-38.

Opened in (or around) 1950, demolished in the late 1990s.

The Richmond Drive-In opened in 1951. I just recently found a 1950 aerial view showing the theater under construction.

50sSNIPES commented about Morehead Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 2:26 pm

A 1995 aerial view shows that the theater was completely gone, so it may be demolished in the early 1990s.

50sSNIPES commented about Lebanon Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 2:21 pm

I just recently looked through a few aerials, and I just found out that the Lebanon Drive-In stood abandoned for more than three long decades until ultimately demolishing in the late 1980s.

50sSNIPES commented about Hilltop Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 1:43 pm

It appears that the Hilltop opened as early as 1956 and was demolished in the late 1990s.

50sSNIPES commented about Elinda-Ann Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 1:39 pm

Probably the owner. It opened as early as 1952 and closed in the 1960s it looks like.

The Dixie Drive-In only operated for not even close to a decade. It was demolished in the 1960s.

50sSNIPES commented about Corral Drive-In on Sep 23, 2022 at 1:36 pm

It was built in 1960. I just recently saw an aerial view of the theater being constructed. It probably opened in 1960 or 1961. It was demolished during the second quarter of the 1990s.
