This is not the “largest screen in PA.” Not even close. The Circle Drive-In in Dickson City has a screen which is roughly 105 feet wide. The screen at the Silver is just under 90 feet wide, probably closer to 85 feet.

NYozoner commented about Roosevelt Drive-In on Jan 3, 2017 at 11:17 pm

In the 1953 aerial photo, you can see an older drive-in to the west being torn down, and the newer drive-in to the east being built. In the 1958 aerial photo, the drive-in to the east is fully operational, while the drive-in to the west is just a ghost. The drive-in to the east was obviously the Roosevelt. What was the original name of the drive-in to the west which was rebuilt or replaced by the Roosevelt?

All references in Film Daily Yearbook and International Motion Picture Almanac call this South City Drive-In. The grand opening ad indicates it was called South City Drive-In. The signage in the photo uploaded on the photo page also points toward this drive-in being called South City.
