The Olympic Drive-In aka: The Big O.

Well, I donít know about my favorite drive-in. It did show p orn. Yes, thatís right, an outside screen theater showing p orn.

The Olympic Drive-In aka: The Big O.

I only went a time or two and they are forever burned in my brain. It was so odd. Went with a bunch of high school friends. The fence enclosing the theater grounds was draped in black material and most of it was torn. It was only an attempt to hide the screens from the public and surrounding neighborhood.

This drive-in opened as the Rock Road in Pagedale by Wehrenberg Theatres and had a 400 car capacity. After changing ownership in the early-1960ís it began running **** 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 couldnít 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 1977 and is now a junk yard, but the large marquee with the giant Olympic torch is still facing the Rock Road.
