Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Overlook Drive-In opened September 10, 1949. A vibrant drive-in that still attracts large crowds and people from all walks of life, the Overlook Drive-In is located just 15 minutes away from the endangered Hyde Park Drive-In

I believe a handful of drive-ins have actually OPENED in recent years, in a modest reversal of a long-time trend. I don’t have corroborating data at the moment to back that up, but I distinctly remember reading that somewhere within the past couple of years

Correct NYDave. Here in New Jersey, the Delsea Drive-in reopened after being closed for almost 20 years. And in Maryland and Texas, I believe some brand new ones were built in the last few years.

I can verify that the two drive-ins near me (Overlook and Hyde Park) do a bang-up business in the summer, so there’s definitely a market for drive-ins. Now let’s bring back the automat and the drive-in restaurant!

Mentioned in a NYTimes CT Section piece on the two drive-ins left in Connecticut.

1969 sees “PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE” and “GUIDE FOR A MARRIED MAN” playing both rated “M”.

Alicia, the movies playing the Overlook Drive-in Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY on June 1, 1976 were a double feature of Mother Jugs and Speed and Harry and Toronto. Sorry my reply being late by about eight years.

Shouldn’t that be “Harry & Tonto” not Toronto?
