Echo Drive-In

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 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?

The main photo is not anwhwere near where the drive in was. It was miles down the road.

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.

Does anybody have any photos of this drive-in that they could post?
