In 1967 I found it listed as being in Norvelt.

Could use an address or crossroad, more info and photos always welcome.

There’s a great photo of the Rustic marquee in the book from the Images Of America series: “Norvelt: A New Deal Subsistence Homestead”.

The Rustic Drive-in was located on Mt Pleasant Road just past the Westmoreland County Fairgrounds on the opposite side of the road approximately ¼ mile. There is nothing left on the site.
