For the record, the owner/ builder/ operator of this place, including the skating rink, was Walter Demlow (deceased).

There was another drive-in theatre in Adrian just a mile east of the Sky named the Hilltop Drive-in. It was at the southwest corner of US 223 and Ogden Hwy and operated from 1948 to 1955, and is now displaced by the Palmyra speedway (a go cart track). This was before my time as I was born in 1957, but from my understanding was a rather simple affair with a blowspeaker. The Sky won out with its big 40 X 80 screen and in car speakers.
