Bethlehem Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

On Stefko Boulevard at Easton Avenue, next to the old Two Guys store just outside Bethlehem – demolished years ago for development. Don’t recall when it was closed, but it probably ran until late-1980’s. Anyone remember this theater or have photos?

It was operational until at least 1994, as I saw “The Lion King” there as a kid. Even then it was on it’s way out and probably closed not soon after.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 3050 Easton Avenue. From Google Maps, you can still make out the outline.

the drive-in was open till 1995 and demolished in 1999 :( I have a photo of the old sign and it brings back memories… such a shame that an American icon like drive-ins are disappearing across the country and the switch to digital that is going on in the next year will send many more of the 368 drive-ins across the country to close up for good. Friends and I are trying to save the one in Lehighton so if anyone can help please help keep our cultural icon still alive… Drive-ins are such a different experience for the family than regular movie theatres.. We can remain in our own element, sit as we would like to and if we want to carry conversations in our vehicle or sitting outside it, it doesn’t bother anyone… please visit this youtube link and see how Honda is trying to help save drive-in theatres… tell me this video doesn’t warm your heart… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh2ULhXtqYU&feature=share

I grew up in one of the houses pictured in the aerial photo. Hampshire Road is the street directly across Easton Avenue from the left entrance/exit, and Butztown Road is the street closest to the right one. The drive-in was a mile east of the intersection of Stefko Blvd/Easton Ave.
