Was an E.M. Loew’s Theatres drive-in. It was closed and torn down in 1986 for condos. It was open in 1957 but probably older than that.

The drive-in had nineteen rows for cars and one screen. On a typical summer weekend two lines would form at the ticket gate and extend out onto Scott Swamp Rd. (route 6) for about a quarter mile. Also the consession stand had two serving lines running, but you never saw the end of the lines until after one in the morning. During the mid sixties, when I worked there, car heaters were also installed to allow year round operation.
