I remember the 9G alternating between X-rated fare and 2nd run commercial movies until the late 1970s when it went mostly 1st run. The last season it was open was 1985 and is indeed demolished.

Google Street view from May 2012 shows the two round base footers that held the two poles that held up that sign in the photo section are still there.

When I look at the info at the link provided by lostmemory and the picture above it seems that the name should be “9G Drive Theatre”

According to this Excel document I found on the web, the 9G opened in 1964 and closed in 1985.

The same document makes tantalizing references to two other local drive-ins: the Fishkill Drive-In (1955-1980) and yet another one in Hyde Park called the Auto Vision (1949-1961).

This drive-in screened porno movies in its later days. This was possible because the screen was not visible from the highway. Sneaking in on foot through the woods was a popular pastime for the local teenagers.

To the best of my recollection, the 9G drive-in closed down sometime around the early or mid ‘80s.
