Opened October 19 1949 with “Three Little Girls in Blue” & “The Westerner”, the Boulevard Drive-In was located on Union Boulevard in Allentown, not far from Walp’s Restaurant. It had a great location, with a steep hillside parking lot so the views were really unobstructed, and some radio towers nearby that had neon call letters on them (I think WAEB?).
Back in the 1960’s and 1970’s there was minimal development behind the theater so you’d be looking out over a bit of suburbia, and it was just a nice local drive-in. I think it finally closed up in the mid-to-late-1980’s.
I remember going there for the last time around 1981. The whole area nearby has now been developed.
