Camp Horne Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was a two-screen drive-in located in Ohio Township/Ben Avon, in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh. It opened May 22, 1953 as a single screen theatre, and closed in 1987. A second screen was added July 2, 1980. There is now a supermarket and a Home Depot on the site.

Opened May 22, 1953. Closed at the end of the 1987 season. When the Parkway North stretch of I-279 opened two years later, the two screens and ticket booth were still standing, visible from the Camp Horne Rd. interchange. All hopes of resurrecting the Camp Horne Drive-In were dashed once Giant Eagle and Home Depot bought the land several years later.

When it opened the car capacity as a single drive-in was between 500-600 cars. International Motion Picture Almanac states 600 cars.

One of the drive-ins nearest to Downtown Pittsburgh.

Here is a 1957 aerial photo. I used 132 Ben Avon Heights Road to find the drive-in. That is the address of the Giant Eagle market that replaced the theater.
