By the way, when was this place built and when was it converted to 5 screens?

Like the nearby Manor, they play a lot of “indie” films that you can’t see elsewhere in the Pittsburgh area.

Not great, but not a bad place to see a show. They play a lot of “indie” flicks that you can’t see anywhere else in the area.

Oh, that’s right. The Walmart is where this place stood. When we were teen-agers, my brother, who is two years older than I, used to come here with his friends. Sometimes he’d let me tag along. I’d been here with my friends too. It closed when I was 19 and I remember that this place did good business.

I can remember when this place first opened. My brother and I drove out here during the opening week. That was the only time I was ever at this theatre, although I’d been to the drive-in when I was a teenager. I honestly believe that the drive-in was a lot more fun.

It was a huge miscalculation to build this place. I wonder if the drive-in would still be in business today if it wasn’t bulldozed to build this hulk.

This shows what proper investment and promotion can do. It’s a little out of the way, but I’ve enjoyed coming here. It is only a short walk from the “T”. I went with one of my girlfriends to see HAIRSPRAY here this past weekend.
