That Hess was built on the site of the former Henery’s Hamburger next to Endwell Rug.Today it is Express Auto used car sales. I believe the drive-in was a bit further east.

This opened on August 21st, 1946 as the Tri-City Drive-In, the first in the area. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

I believe that at some point, maybe when they built the marquee sign I just uploaded, that this drive-in’s name changed to Tri-Cities. From the town names, it’s the same place as the grand opening ad, but you can’t deny that sign. Not that it’s proof, but in the 1953-54 edition the Motion Picture Almanacs switched to calling this 565-car, Comerford Circuit drive-in the Tri-Cities of Endwell instead of the George F of Endicott.

The 1955-56 Theatre Catalog also listed it as the Tri-Cities of Endwell, capacity 600.
