Pittsburgh’s second drive-in theater opened on September 5, 1946. It was located on William Penn Highway (originally U.S. 22, now Business U.S. 22), just west of the future Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange (in which the Irwin-Pittburgh stretch opened in 1951). It closed on November 15 1959 with Dolores Michaels in “Five Gates to Hell” & Fred MacMurray in “The Oregon Trail”, but Monroeville would have two other drive-ins by the following summer: Monroeville Drive-In and Miracle Mile Drive-In.
The Pittsburgh Drive-In was replaced first with Kaufmann’s department store, then #1 Cochran Pontiac. Today, a Lowe’s home improvement store occupies the old drive-in site.
