I made 2 visits for the 2012 season, still one of my favorite drive-ins. It is the smallest DI in the state, official capacity is 154 cars based off the speaker poles. The website is: ptwheelinmotormovie.com

The 1955-56 Theatre Catalog listed it with a capacity of 320, which can’t have been accurate. Could it be that it was including the seats in the Wheel-In’s indoor viewing area?

From its first listing in the IMPAs into the 1970s, the Wheel-In was given a capacity of 200. By 1982, it was down to 190.

Theater is temporarily closed until July 1 (approx) for installation of a new screen. Looks like it’ll be a very short season for them this year.

I guess it’s taking longer than expected. They still have not opened yet for the season.
