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.

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. :–)
