The Sara-Placid Drive-In was located on NY State Route 86, halfway between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid in the town of North Elba. One of the owners was Ernie Stautner who played football for many years as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The drive-in opened on June 24, 1950 with Glenn Ford in “The Man from Colorado” & Bud Abbott & Lou Costello in “Keep ‘em Flying”.
In addition to movies it was also used for church services during the 1950’s. The owners also operated an adjacent miniature golf course.
When the drive-in closed in 1974, the land was sold to the State of New York and is now a part of the McKenzie Mountain Wilderness Area.
