Hollowbrook Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Hollowbrook Drive-In was opened prior to 1955. This outdoor theater in Peekskill (about 30-45 miles north of NYC) that I visited in the early-mid-1970’s. Part of the Liggett & Florin chain, it closed about 1984.

I am looking for information about the ORIGINAL Hollowbrook golf course that was in or around the area of the cinema. The course was abandoned, possibly during the Depression years of the 1930’s. If anyone can provide information, photos, possible information sources, etc. about the original golf course I will be grateful.

Bernie Brooks was the owner of the Hollowbrook in 1958. Here is a 1974 aerial photo:

Both 700 cars and Bernie Brooks are correct facts.

Above address dos not map correctly. Jay Rd. at Oregon Rd. was where the drive-in entrance was. This one had long driveway with the drive-in further north.

Saw the Movie “Frogs” there in 1972. I also remember the “FOGMAN” who used that DDT for pest control. What were they thinking? Also the movie “They came from within”. The long windy road at night was scary for a lad of 9.

This Hollowbrook Drive-In sign and history were on “Antiques Roadshow” this evening. Copy & paste to view.

Many fond memories of going to this place with Dad. Loved visiting Carvel across the street. Saw Prom Night, The Shining, C.H.U.D., Texas Chainsaw Massacre.. Loved walking around before it started and trying to find the best sounding window speaker. Eventually it turned to radio speaker.
