Above address is incorrect. This is several blocks south. Approx. address for this drive-in was 19 New York 59. The huge screen is still up. Concession foundation is still there as are all the ramps.

Property is now a “Park and Ride” so people can catch the bus. Screen still in good shape, but half the property is overgrown. Concession stand/projection booth long gone, but restoration is possible.

As an aside, the Google street view from 2016 shows the driver of a pickup on the north lane using his hand to show his disapproval of being on Google street view.

Still Operating Since 1995, But Have Been Closed Later On Because In The 2004 Cam You Can See A Lot Of Bushes Covering Most Of The Parking.
