 Overview
 Description
Since 2005 the property has been purchased and now has construction work going on. The first thing you'll see is the old sign out by the road then after following the hill down behind a building to the right you'll see the abandoned ticket booths and offices that are boarded up. A fence still lines the property complete with the signs to direct the drive in traffic. At the very back of the property the large screen still stands. The second screen was removed some time ago. The asphalt and gravel have been removed and there is nothing but dirt around the property. A few speaker poles can still be found laying around the property.

     History
    Once billed as Cincinnati's "last outdoor picture show", this drive in movie theatre was able to accomidate 900 cars and at time featured 2 screens. In 1996 it was voted one of Cincinnati's best entertainment venues by City Beat Magazine. The Oakley screened its last films in Sept. 2005. Today constructions is taking place to turn the property into something new. Only the ticket booths and main screen remain as of July 2007.
