Correction above title: The theater was built in the late 1950’s.

Way demolished! But you can’t demolish the memories, no matter how many Verizon and Cingular stores you build on our graves! I have so many memories from the Commack Drive In. The first movie I ever saw there was “Beneath The Planet of the Apes”…in 1970! What really killed drive ins was when they stopped showing double bills! I remember seeing crap like “Back To The Future”, “Never Say Never Again”, “Gremlins”, “HellRaiser” or “The Twilight Zone Movie”,on SINGLE bills in the mid 1980’s before Commack closed. The concession stand had poorly painted Disney and Warner Brothers characters on the walls, inside (which really gave this the old world Drive In theater flavor!). LOL. One last vestige of hope was when they re-released “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in the early 1980’s and I caught it at the Commack D.I.
