Pocono Drive-In

Located on Route 611 between Bartonsville & Stroudsville. The newly opened Pocono Drive-In was advertised in the Daily Record during June 1951 as the area’s most modern drive-in. Less than a decade later, the drive-in fell victim to the construction of the Keystone Shortway, now known as Interstate 80.

Today the site of the former theatre is in the junction of routes 33 and 611 and I-80, according to Monroe County resident Roy E. Phipher in his 2010 book “History of the Movie Theaters in Monroe Conty, PA”.

The entrance to the drive-in was where Red Lobster is today.

Why the name Pocono?
