PA 48 at Lincoln Way,
1 person favorited this theater
Rainbow Gardens was an amusement triplex consisting of swimming pool (opened in 1924) and amusement park (added in the mid-1940’s), with the drive-in following in 1948. It was located in the northeast corner of PA 48 and Lincoln Way; the amusement park was built alongside the two roads, surrounding the pool. The drive-in was placed at the northern end of the park alongside PA 48. It was operated by Co-Operative Theatre Services.
Everything was razed at the end of the 1968 season for a new PA 48 Expressway. Unfortunately, this never materialized, so one can only guess how many more years the triplex would have been around. The pool and park sites are now occupied by a shopping center with a car dealership placed where the drive-in was.
