Warren, OH’s Elm Road Triple Drive-in celebrates sixty years

posted by CSWalczak on July 6, 2010 at 4:58 am

WARREN, OH — Regular upgrades over the years have enabled the Elm Road Triple Drive-In to accomplish what not very many other drive-ins have been able to do: celebrate a diamond anniversary. The gates to the still family-owned outdoor theater opened in August of 1950.

The drive-in, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, is one of the last of its kind in the Mahoning Valley. There are fewer than 400 drive-ins left in the U.S., according to the United Drive-In Theater Owners Association.

The Elm Road Triple Drive-In has bucked the trend by modernizing its facilities to reflect the changing times, said theater manager Sheri Hocevar, daughter of owner Bob Hreno.

Oh my god what a beautiful marquee. Congratulations, and here’s to 60 more! Now I must plan a visit to the Elm Road on one of my next car trips to Ohio.
