The Drive-In was originally owned by the Taylor family who also owned the Middletown and Rock Hill Drive-In's at the time.

I understand that the latest owners of the Fair Oaks Drive-In have closed the Drive-In after the last showing of the 2013 season due to not having the funds to upgrade to digital and have the place for sale.

The Fair Oaks DI lives on, opening April 2014. I think there are new owners/operators involved.

It remains closed as of 5/11/14. We drove by at 7:30 PM on the Sunday 5/11/14 and there was no activity- no cars- nothing. We keep looking to see if it is opening but there is no web site and no activity.

It is reopen now, They were able to afford the digital projections It will reopen in March 2015

To clear up confusion...the drive-in was closed for the 2014 season but it had nothing to do with digital.

The theatre is re-opening in 2015, but is still on 35mm film. Hope to see everyone at the drive-in!
