Kenmawr Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was a drive-in located to the west of Pittsburgh outside the community of McKees Rocks. It was opened in 1950. I remember seeing “Night of the Living Dead” there. I’m not sure when it closed.

Opened July 2, 1949. One of many Pittsburgh area drive-ins to close after the 1986 season. Located in Kennedy Township at Coraopolis & Fleming Park Rds. (PA 51). Stanford Courts housing development now occupies the Kenmawr Drive-In site.

The Kenmawr Drive-In was a favorite of pop singer Lou Christie, who lived in nearby Glenwillard. He used to mention this one during between-song banter, usually before “Rhapsody In The Rain”.
