Motor View Drive-In

The Motor Vu Drive-In was opened July 9, 1955. This drive-in was closed at least twice. First closed in 1967 and reopened on July 2, 1971 as the Motor View Drive-In. Later closed again and re-opening in the 1990’s, the drive-in boasted $5/car load prices, and maintained a consistent crowd. It was closed again circa 2000. It was then sold to the township, and the concession stand was transformed into a municipal building. The screen still stands.

The Cinestage Group, Jack Oberleitner, Tom Poling and others) operated the Motor Vu for one season in 1973. Very profitable!
Ran many “dusk to dawn” shows. Concession stand sold out completely for Beatles D to D marathon. :–)

Thank you for these memories. My grandfather, Anthony Sacco, built and operated the Motor Vu drive-in theater, and my mother worked there for many years. I worked there some years while I was growing up, and I spent two full summers working at their other drive in, Laurel, in Hazleton in the 1970s.
