The Franklin Drive-In opened on May 31, 1948 and closed at the end of the 1982 season. It was located about 1-½ miles north of Malone at the corner of Junction Rd. Junction Rd. runs parallel to Route 11 and they curve together at this point.

I found two other possible locations:

Highway 11 and Junction Road (I couldn’t find a Junction Road)?

84 College (that looks like it could have been a site for a drive in).

What do you think?

Anyone know the real site of the drive-in?

The drive-in was opened SOMETIME BETWEEN 1948-1950 and closed 1981-1985. If anyone can come up with better date or more info, please post it.
