I went to the Tri-State site in Oct. of 2013 and sadly only a rusted, deteriorating screen is all that remains. No concession stand, projection booth, or box office. Just an empty field

Up until perhaps the 1970s, there was an indoor theater called the Mary Ann, which I believe was in McDonald PA. There seems to be no Cinema Treasures entry for it. Can anyone help here? I’m asking on the Tri-State Drive-In forum because I think the Mary Ann and the Tri-State were rural neighbors. Thank you.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, while the Tri-State was in its heyday, the weekly playbill/program featuring current and forthcoming features was inserted in all copies of The Pittsburgh Press distributed in the Burgettstown/McDonald/Bulger/Midway area.

I drove past the Tri-State for the first time in a while yesterday. The TRI-STATE DRIVE-IN/Coca-Cola sign is gone, and the stone pillar that said TRI-STATE as well as the ticket booth have been torn down. The deteriorating screen is still up but is now missing one of the metal slabs.
