Echo Screen

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of the ‘3 Musketeers’ of Route 51, along with the Colonia Drive-In and South Hills Drive-In. The Echo Drive-In was near the township of Large, and was opened by 1955. Closed sometime in the late-1980’s, a nursing home sits on the old Echo Drive-In site now.

I drove by where I remember the Echo being today… there’s an assisted living center there now?

That’s what was noted earlier. I was wondering if any part of the drive-in remains.

no, nothing except for an all too level looking empty space next to the assisted living center. I do remember the screen still being there in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

I was fortunate to have gotten photos of the field, screen, and snack bar before it was all torn down. You can find these on www.drive-ins.com Unfortunately, the marquee was already removed from Route 51. I also missed getting the marquees for the neighboring Colonial and South Hills Drive-Ins too. Eventually somebody out there has photos of these marquees and can post them on the Internet. Anyone?

I remember going here for several movies, including a double bill of “The Sting” and “The Hindenburg”. My Dad noticed there was a Hudson Truck parked behing the screen. Hudson built mostly cars, so this was a rare vehicle. It must of been owned by somebody that worked there.
