The Hi-Way Drive-In has a website that I forgot to include when I added the drive-in here. The website is:
Your right Bway, it should be west. The address listed puts it just on the west side of Montauk Highway (Main St) near Deer Park Ave.
The current listing that I found for this theater is:
Clearview’s Babylon Cinemas
34 Main Street
Babylon, NY 11702
This theater is listed as being part of the Loews chain.
Before changing locations and becoming the Olympic Drive-In, the Pico Drive-In was the first drive-in theater in California. The Pico drive-in opened September 9, 1934. The address listed for the Pico Drive-In is Pico Blvd & Westwood Blvd.
Thanks Bryan! 1494 South Park Ave maps correctly for the location given for the Abbott theater.
Here is a link to a current photo of the site where the Abbott theater was located. The address on that building should be the address for the Abbott theater.
Disregard that last message, that link is for the Abbott Theater, so 625 William St should be correct for the Savoy/Roxie.
Charles….I also find a listing of 625 William St. for this theater. Savoy was the name it opened with. The website that Bryan posted has a current photo of the Savoy/Roxy theater. The building now houses a business called Connies Laundry and Dry Cleaning. In the photo, you can see an address on the building. The address appears to be “822-2800”. I’ll post a link to that photo. Maybe someone can read those numbers better than I can.
I have seen a recent photo of the Senate theater and the building is still intact, marquee and all. It appears to be just an empty building as of today.
The Bel Air Drive-In opened on July 14th, 1948 with the comedy film “It Happened On Fifth Avenue” as its opening feature. It showed 1st and 2nd-run movies until it closed in 1986.
This is another family owned drive-in located in upstate NY. It began in 1949 with Jake Stefanon and continues operating today with his son Rick Stefanon running the theater.
It is hard to tell from that photo. There appears to be something there. Either glass or some sort of screening like a screen window.
Okay, so it doesn’t really have its own screen. Your watching one of the movies on the outdoor screen.
Each outdoor screen shows a different double feature but I don’t see any listing for the indoor theater.
Sorry Robert, that link is for the El Rancho drive-in. Here is the link for the Bay Drive-In.
Good question. I found a website for this theater and maybe you can find the answer there. They might be closed for the winter and no movies would be listed.
I found an address an address of 625 William St listed for this theater. Can anyone confirm this address?
The Bay Drive-In claims that it is the only remaining drive-in theater in NY with an indoor theater.
Okay, thanks longislandmovies.
I was reading the history of Theatre Three on their website and it says, “For the past twenty-one seasons, Theatre Three has occupied Athena Hall, a one-hundred and twenty-five year-old historic building”. Was Athena Hall the old Port Jeff movie theater?
Do you think that the Theatre three could be the same theater that Charles posted about called the Port Jefferson and later the Art?
There is a live performance theater located at 412 Main st in Port Jeff today called Theatre Three. Was this previously a movie theater? Here is the website for the theater currently at 412 Main st.
This drive-in is listed as being owned by UA at the time that it closed which was in 1987.
The address for this drive-in is 4540 Shankweiler Rd, Orefield, PA 18069.
This drive-in was the first drive-in to open in Pennsylvania. It has a capacity of 300 cars.
