El Rancho Drive-In (II)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1971, seven years after the original drive-in closed. Located in South Fayette Township (although assigned to nearby Bridgeville), just about a mile from the original drive-in’s location. Closed in 1984. The site is now called El Rancho Field, used for township soccer games. The screen is still standing and some speaker poles are gathered at the entrance to the field.

The STAR theatre now occupies the land where this Drive-in once stood

Not quite, DeCoteau, but you’re close. The Star was situated near the corner of Miller’s Run Road (PA 50) and Hickory Grade Road. From that point, go about ¾ mile up Hickory Grade Rd. and you’ll find the remains of the El Rancho.

Most of the screen was taken down this past June; all that remains of it as of now are the steel supports.
