General Information:

From Cinema Treasures

The Blue Sky Drive-In opened in 1948, around the same time as two other area drive-ins, the Walled Lake Drive-In (better known as the Walake) and the Pontiac Drive-In. Initially operated by Northeast Drive-In Theatre Corp., the Blue Sky Drive-In later became part of the National Amusements chain. It originally had space for around 700 cars.

The Blue Sky Drive-In was demolished in 1989 to make way for the Showcase Cinemas Auburn Hills megaplex, which, in turn, closed in 2002, due to competition from the new Star Theatres Great Lakes Crossing 25, also in Auburn Hills.

Hi my family use to own the driven back in the early 60. We had a 3 way partner ship it was Frank Budjanec , Tom Budjanec and Paul affiltranger . My dad tom Budjanec was running the ambridge theater .owned by warrior brothers. I remember my brother and I loved to go out their on the weekends we use to love to go on the songs until the movie started .and I love to smell the popcorn in the stand . The driven was really out in the country and had a hard time getting people out there . Some time .my dad and I later built the ambridge theater .after the big theater got torn down .and dad took the neion letters from the blue sky driven market to make the ambridge theater sign . I really miss that driven . I remember always fixing all the speakers All the time . people wood take them. Good old times
