PONCA CITY, Okla. – Residents in one Oklahoma town were able to say goodbye to a landmark earlier this month in grand fashion and were treated to a spectacular sight in the sky.
The Airline Drive-In in Ponca City has been closed since 2007 and is scheduled to be demolished.
A developer has already purchased the land and is set to build a housing development in place of the old drive-in theater.
Earlier this month, some residents and Praise FM teamed up to say goodbye to the drive-in with one final movie.
The drive-in welcomed guests one last time for a free showing of ‘God’s Not Dead.’
Residents who were at the theater on Saturday say the title of that movie became a reality when they photographed the face of God in the clouds above the screen.
A guest captured a picture of what looks like a face in the clouds looking down on the theater.
For Mandy Moehlman, who took the picture, says it served as a message that God is omnipresent.
After the movie, there has been a renewed effort to save the theater.
A Facebook page has been created to call for the theater to be saved.
Over 1,000 people made it out the first weekend, exceeding Praise FM’s expectations.
With so many turning out to catch the flick, the Praise says they feel they had to show it again this weekend.
It will run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Admission is free and the movie starts around 9 p.m.
