Valley Drive-In

The Valley Drive-In was opened on May 12, 1950. Sayre, Pennsylvania had the beautiful downtown Sayre Theatre that just had to be tripled and basically ruined. When times got bad for the Valley Drive-In, it just went dark. and was demolished in 1986. The good times in the 1950’s would see the 500 car lot filled. The Valley Drive-in Theatre was operated by J.A. Ryan.

This was a nice drive-in, I specifically remember going there with my Mom & a family friend while the guys were putting the countertop in their kitchen—-the smell of the adhesive would gag a maggot, so we left. The movies playing were Ben & Tales From The Crypt. This was the summer of 1972, after Tropical Storm Agnes was long gone.

The address in the heading is way off.

There is now a small retail plaza at the front of the drive-in location, which includes a First National Bank and a UPS Store.
