I live in the area. I have asked a ton of old timers about this drive in and there are no memories of such. I have checked the local newspaper for ads (over 30 years) and have yet to find such. I have Movie Theaters Annuals from 1928 to 1960 and this theater is not listed at all. Makes you wonder, does it not?

Chuck1231, I just don’t think that the Palisades existed. I have newspaper ads for the last days of the Stockade that agree with their disappearing from the listings in the City Directory. I have the same for the B&L Drive In. There are no listings for the Palisades in the City Directory, old Phone Directories, or newspaper ads. Just cannot verify that it existed plus none of the folks that grew up in the area have any memory of this theater – nor do the folks at the local newspaper in Williamsburg.

Chuck1231, just noticed that you posted the car capacity. Can you tell me where that originated and the years that it shows it to be.. By the way, I can find no entry for this theater in the Motion Picture Daily which supposedly listed all the theaters up to 1970 or so.
