    Big Dusk-to-Dawn, Retro Holiday Chill-fest of Horrors at the Finger Lakes Drive-in Theater

    Image

    AUBURN, NY —

    Thursday July 3, 2014 Finger Lakes Drive-In

    Four classic, 1970’s era drive-in shockers: “Ruby,” “Burial Ground,” “Death Dream” aka Dead of Night, and a Surprise Bonus feature, plus vintage short films and trailers. Admission is $10 per person with the option of free camping on the site. Food and drinks available in the concession stand. Kick off your Fourth of July weekend with an exciting show reminiscent of once common, holiday dusk-to-dawn drive-in movie marathons.

    This will be a unique, one-of-a-kind retro movie marathon show reminiscent of Independence Day holiday dusk to dawn shows once commonplace at drive-in theaters in most every city and town of any size in the U.S, including drive-ins in the Syracuse region. I can substantiate this claim with plenty of old drive-in newspaper ads and articles from the 60’s and 70’s. The Finger Lakes Drive-in, I believe, is the only surviving drive-in in the greater Syracuse region.

    VANDERGRIFT, PA — A weekend full of nostalgic retro thrills and chills, DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA is two nights of classic horror and science fiction 35mm prints presented at an authentic drive-in movie theater. There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! This is the seventh year in a row that we are hosting such an event, so we encourage all drive-in movie fanatics to travel from near and far, as you’re not going to find anything else like it, anywhere!

    What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen? We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is still only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian. How can you beat that? The Riverside’s concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much more!
