The Turnpike was not located at Arlene Av., which runs north from Western Avenue. The drive-in was on the south side of Western Av., and what was the entrance to the drive-in is now Highwood Circle.

Albany is not really a large city geographically so all the drive-ins are and were located outside the city limits. The closest ones still operating are the Jericho in Glenmont, Malta in Malta and the Hollywood in Averill Park. The long gone ones include the Tri-City Twin in Menands,Latham in Latham, Mohawk in Colonie, Carmen in Guilderland, Auto-Vision in East Greenbush, Super 50 in Glenville, and Indian Ladder in New Scotland, as well as the Turnpike. This list is far from complete, but includes the ones I went to as a youngster.
