Skyline Drive-In reopens after repairs

September 20, 2013 

The Skyline Drive-In movie theater near Shelton, closed since Sept. 5 because of damage from a lightning strike, will reopen tonight.

The drive-in’s new digital projector was damaged after lightning struck a power pole at the edge of the property and traveled down the line to the main building. The projector was installed in August following a successful crowdsourcing project on the website that raised more than $40,000 from more than 500 contributors.

The drive-in opens at 7 p.m. with an R-rated horror double feature originally intended for Friday the 13th: “You’re Next” followed by “The Conjuring.” Because Skyline closes for the season before Halloween, it will award all of Friday’s patrons wearing Halloween costumes complimentary popcorn or soda.
