This is probably from 1957 when the movie Jet Pilot came out.

Yes it’s still there. The projection building is in the back but it is so overgrown now. I remember it being closed as I drove by in the 80’s on the way to my grandmother’s house.

You’d think there would be more. My buddy spent a lot of time down there in the 70’s. There is activity on twitter from some of the Asbury Park witter sites? I wonder if they might be of help?

This is around the corner from my work and one of our satellite clinics is next door. It’s a great alternative to higher priced theaters.

NittyRanks commented about Lockport Drive-In on Sep 20, 2016 at 12:30 pm

This was a one screen drive-in. I used to see it on the way to my grandmothers in the “Little Italy” section of Lockport NY. There was room for about 250 cars there according to a website. The original owner was Anthony Ragusa. I remember it was torn down in 1988 The Google map doesn’t show it but there is a couple old buildings still on site like the projection and snack bar buildings but you wouldn’t know by looking if you didn’t know it once stood there.There is a lot of garbage on site.

This was on the show American Pickers tonight. They interviewed someone that was trying to save the theater at one time and he actually had some of the Art Deco style light fixtures in there that they bought

If you Google the address you will see the picture of the theater. It is an appliance store but last year the marquee had to be taken down as it was in disrepair.

Now the church that was near it just burned. I know it’s a theater site but it’s sad nonetheless.

I saw the episode but that daughter said it was open in the 1970’s when Mike was talking to her? I wonder if that 1968 date is correct then?
