Rose Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened on May 15, 1952 with a capacity for 800 cars and the films "Happy Go Lovely" and "Drums in the Deep South". Located on PA 180 (now PA 130) between Jeannette and Trafford, Westmoreland County. The Rose Drive-In was one of several drive-ins in the Greater Pittsburgh area owned by the Warren family.

Apparently, it didn’t last very long; an article in the April 23, 1957 issue of Jeannette’s News-Dispatch mentioned the developement of 250 houses at Rose Acres, "one mile west of Harrison City, where the old Rose Drive-In was".

It must have closed a few years later cause it is not in the 1956 Motion Picture Almamac listing Drive-ins.

Who ever owned the land it was on maybe knew that it was to be redeveloped and ran a drive-in till they got a good offer for the land and said I,ll take it.The cities love homes to collect much more taxes than a drive-in could bring in.

Sure could use an address or crossroads. I’ve also seen this Drive-In listed as being in Jeannette?

More info and photos are always welcome.

The Rose Drive-In site now consists of housing on two streets, Pamela Drive and Rose Avenue. From PA 130 East, 8/10 of a mile past the PA Turnpike overpass, the right turn onto Pamela was originally the turnoff road to the drive-in.
