I worked at a competitor of the Super 71, The Hilltop Drive In. The Super 71 always got the best pictures, as they were able to make big money for the film companies. As with most Drive Inns, the part year and the value of the land made operating the drives ins a losing proposition. The Belle Vernon and the Charleroi, Monessen, Donora, and Monongahela areas are underserved, as there is no indoor multiplex’s close by. The drive ins that are still running, find it hare to exist as the cost of going Digital was a pretty big expense, but you had to bit the bullet, or go out of business.

Rather odd, the aerial from 1952 shows 1 screen, the aerial from 1969 shows two, and the aerial from 1993, when it was still open apparently, shows only one screen again and the spot where the second was had been developed already.

I remember in the mid-1970’s, they were planning on building a dome over the whole lot!
