Monroeville Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened August 11, 1960. Built alongside the Pennsylvania Turnpike, near the Northern Pike interchange. This was one of several Pittsburgh area drive-ins to close after the 1986 season. There is nothing left of the drive-in, but the sign and signpost remained at the turnoff on Northern Pike for years after its closing. Both signs are now gone as well.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 2628 Mosside Boulevard. As far as I can tell, there was no drive-in on the Pike Itself.

I grew up in Monroeville, but was a bit too young to remember this theater. In the early 1990s I worked at a Chinese restaurant(Chin’s Polynesian Garden) on Northern Pike, and right across the street was an old cast aluminum street sign for Drive-In Theater Lane. This was the main driveway for this theater from what the old timers told me. On the little map you can see this road as a little dead end spur about an inch and a quarter to the right of the red place marker. In the late 1980s a lot of development happened on Mosside Blvd. across from the Gateway High School. A self-storage place was part of this development and the lower units took the place of the theater and screen.
