This is Massena’s newest Drive-In. How about the Sunset Drive In? It was near Massena Center off the road that later lead to Eisenhower Lock area. My parents and I went to see a movie there in the early 1950’s and to our dismay, the screen had blown down the night before. I wanted to just cry. So I did.

This was called the “56 Auto Theatre” when it first opened on July 22, 1955. The drive-in is located on Route 56, south of Massena, which is in the Thousand Island region of New York State. The movie shown on opening night was Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.”
