Plattsburgh Drive-In Lyrics by Chantal Renaud (played often on radio in Quebec)

Donne-moi, deux Michigans Red Hot pis un gros sac de pinottes Un cornet de crème en glace eille dépêche toi la vue commence !

Lève donc ta vitre les bébittes* rentrent
Oui mais faut ben que la fumée sorte
Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues
Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues

Bebé, passe moi donc l'sac de chips, pis mets du vinaigre mon pit Mais jette donc ta grosse gomme dehors, à place d'la jeter dans l'cendrier !

Viens donc te tasser* à côté de moé
Ma tout est traduit en français
C'est un film d'action, j'l'ai déjà vu

Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues (bis)

This drive in was located behind Chicago Uno bar and grill, I remember going there as a kid, the screen was visible from the road in 2008 even though it was down. I worked for the man that owned the property in the early 80’s

That came from Montreal’s La Presse in 1973. The US drive-in increased its ads in the Montreal market when drive-ins were finally allowed in Quebec.

In the 1950’s a company called Plattsburgh Salvage (later known as Globe Metal Service) advertised itself as opposite the Plattsburgh Drive-In.

An article from 1965 says “Owner John Quinn, of Quinn Motor Sales,will lease property from Franklin Akey on the north side of the highway adjacent to the Plattsburgh Drive-In Theatre”. Another article (also from 1965) states that Mr. Akey is erecting a new building near the drive-in that will be leased to a Canadian manufacturer of aluminum overhead and industrial doors.
I don’t know if this helps but I hope it does.

I’m not sure I agree with the location. All their ads say they were located 1 mile west of I-87, but Hammond Lane is less than a half mile from the highway.
