I was told there was a downtown theatre in Kane. Does anyone know more about this one?

I actually live above the former Temple Movie Theatre. It is now a roller skating rink. The building was a Masonic lodge(3rd floor) and home to the KoC’s on the 2nd floor. The whole 2nd floor is now apartments.

There was an Ideal drive-in listed in the 1958 IMPA for Kane, PA. This may have been an AKA if the Family opened in 1952. Owners of the Ideal in 1958 were Farrell & Piccirillo. Capacity was 348.

Hi everyone. Just a quick update. The Family Drive-In in Kane Pa is under new ownership. It has converted to digital projection and its new website is www.kanefamilydrivein.com . The tripod web will eventually drop off before the beginning of the 2015 season. Thank you.

In 1962 the drive-in is listed in IMPA as the Family Drive-In with a capacity for 348 cars. Owner is C.S. Brown. From 1953-59 it is listed as Ideal Drive-In with a capacity for 348 cars. From 1960 on forward it is listed as Family Drive-In.

My conclusion is that this opened as the Ideal Drive-In in 1952, and became the Family Drive-In sometime around 1960, along with an ownership change, which was not uncommon.
