I remember being in the backseat of my parents car when they went to see The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre here in late 60s…They probably thought I was sleeping but I was awake to see the (for its time) gruesome machine gunning scene. It gave me nightmares (and obviously memories) for a long time.

This is likely the site, due to the shape of the lot….

Marquee could use a little work.

Approx. location for this drive-in was around 1000 Fountain Street, Ashland, PA 17921. Part of the outline is still there.

Launched June 2, 1950, the Kerrigans also launched the Harrisburg Drive-In in Lower Paxton at the same time.

A closer address at least on Google is 400 Malones Rd, Ashland, PA. You can still see the outline and the foundation of the projection booth/concession stand.

The marquee appears to be long gone.

Also opened with “Pirates of Monterey”. Mostly empty lot. A house has been built at the entranceway, and another house on one of the back corners of the drive-in site.
