my family owned the blue sky from 69-77. we learned alot about business, hard work, fun, and a little about farming thanks to the duftys and ruths. it kept us busy every summer. great memories. From the webmaster: Do you have any pictures?.

I grew up directly across from the blue sky. I spent my childhood looking at the big blue theater so this realy brings back the memorys. My most vivid memory is all of the neigbors picketing out in front when the theater started playing the xxx movies. (little did my mother know that while she picketing, my dad was up running the film projector).

I was rasied at Gotts Corner and watched a lot of movies at the Blue Sky. I also worked at the Blue Sky checking ID's during the time the Drive-in was showing XXX movies. I remember that Lake Twp made them put reverse lighting around it during that time. Caseville area was a great place to live and be raised during the 1960's.

Coming across this web site brought back fond memories of the Blue Sky Drive-In. In the late ''60s I was camping at Albert E. Sleeper State Park. I made friends with the family that ran the concession stand at the State Park. One night the mother of this family took a group of us in an old station wagon to the Blue Sky to see the movie Fantastic Voyage.

It seemed like this drive-in was located in the middle of nowhere. With no distracting lights from anywhere. Just darkness and an endless star-filled sky. What a beautiful Michigan night.

The Blue Sky last showed movies in the mid to late 1970s. It was truly Blue then, as the last owners tried to make a go showing XXX features.

The drive-in was open the summer of l950. I worked in the concession building the summer l954. Gilda Waterworth was the manager of the concessions.

The remains lie east of Gotts corners. There is a gas station that also sells field drainage tiles at the intersection , proceed east about a quarter mile and its on the left North side) Mike.

I remember seeing the Drive In Blue Sky as a teenager in 1975. The back of the screen that faced Kinde Rd. was a beautiful sky blue color. I drove down that road two weeks ago and couldnt locate the spot. I also remember hearing many years ago that the theatre was originally owned by the parents of Francesca James.

She played the Kitty/Kelly characters on All My Children in the 70s/80s.

As of 3/22/2003, a site inspection performed by WaterWinterWonderland. com revealed there is much more left of this drive-in than previously reported. In addition to the In sign which is laying on the ground (see pic below), there was also a screen foundation, ticket booth remains and almost a full lot of speaker poles with ramps. There was also a full foundation and remains of the concession/projection booth as well as the remains of the fence. There is not a house on the lot itself, although there is one nearby.

This location of this drive-in is actually many miles east of Caseville and is probably closer to Pinnebog. It is on the north side of the road and is surrounded by farmland. It is pretty hard to spot from the road as most of the remnants dont become visible until you walk the lot itself.
