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.
