The Skyway Drive-in on North Leavitt Road in Warren will be closed so repairs can be made after Tuesday’s storms.

The drive-in lost one of its two screens during the high winds. Also, part of the skirting was torn from the side of the main screen, which is used to block the headlights of cars driving by.

Owner Brian Deciancio said the drive-in will only be closed a couple of days while repairs are made.

“We plan on opening up Friday night. The second screen we got to get a hold of some contractors to see how quickly we can get that working again,” said Deciancio. “I expect that will be a couple of weeks, unfortunately. But the most important one is the main screen. Our huge screen is going to be open again Friday.”

Storms raged through the Valley Tuesday night with the hardest hit areas in northern Trumbull and Mercer counties. Wind gusts during the peak of the storm ranged from 50 to 70 miles per hour.
