Richland Drive-In

Opened on June 21, 1949 with “Trail Street”, starring Randolph Scott, Robert Ryan and Anne Jeffreys. Located in the Geistown suburb of Johnstown, 6 ½ miles southeast of downtown on Elton Road (PA 756), just off of U.S. 219/PA 56.

Owned and operated by the County Amusement Company. Closed in the early-1970’s for construction of the Richland Mall which opened in 1974, and closed in 1998 to be demolished in 2003. The former drive-in site is now occupied by Richland Town Centre.
