Harmar Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Harmar Drive-In opened on August 30, 1950 with the Western feature “Barricade”, starring Ruth Roman, Dane Clark and Raymond Massey. Located on Indianola Road (PA 910) just off Freeport Road (old PA 28). Owned and operated by George Rodnok. Closed at the end of the 1968 season for construction of the Allegheny Valley Expressway (current PA 28). From the Historic Aerials website, the overlapped 1952 and 2006 aerial maps show a segment of the AVE as well as the PA 28 Northbound offramp of Exit 11 (PA 910/PA Turnpike/Harmar) running through a good portion of the former drive-in site. You’ll also notice that the AVE is situated behind the snack bar/projection building and the Exit 11 offramp runs through a portion of it.

This was my original entry that I had placed several days ago. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be posted or not; I thought maybe it was too descriptive. My apologies for the second entry of the same place.

The listing above shows a rare occurence with TWO drive-ins in the Pittsburgh Metro Area (28 miles apart) having their grand openings on the same night: Harmar and Lakevue (later renamed Mt. Lebanon).
