Operator Donald Brown announced earlier this year that the 2008 season would be the last for the drive-in. The land is now for sale.
The theater opened in August 1949. The original owners, Albert and Mildred Steele, leased the theater in 1966 to a company that showed adult films until 1985. The screens went dark until the early 1990s, when Brown and Patricia Creigh decided to reopen the drive-in.
The land remained in the Steele family, and Brown says he can't afford to buy the property.
