  1. Simonpure: Many years ago! Try at least 30. It was wonderful when my kids were kids. And they are very old now.

  2. Flashdance was great on the big big screen, Harry and the Henderson’s too. So there’s when I’d shut down. Those legs tho….

  3. The last movie I saw at the Antioch Drive-In, was Jurassic Park. That puts it at 25 yrs ago. I don’t remember when it closed in relation to that though.

  4. The drive-in was 1950 through 1994 where the Kmart and storage facility are now. It had three screens and could have as many as 1,000 cars. Memories!

  5. Long over due. That store should have been closed years ago. Not quite sure what to replace it with right now.
