The Rustic Drive-In opened with a 350-car capacity by owner Bernard Buchheit on May 29, 1953. Located south of Greensburg near the small town of Calumet-Norvelt in the Mount Pleasant Township/United section. Closed at the end of the 1985 season; most of the site is now overgrown with trees.

In 1967 I found it listed as being in Norvelt.

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

This one was near the intersection of Mt. Pleasant Road (SR 2021) and Brinkerton Road.

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.

This place use to show pornos in the 70’s on Saturday nights. Then they stopped only after a few years. I remeber it was a big no no. Those were different times. Gotta love the good old days.
