Two Drive-Ins were built in the Allentown area in the late 1940s after World War II. The Boulevard was opened on Union Boulevard in East Allentown; the West End off the 15th Street Exit of the Leigh Valley Throughway (Route 22).

Operated successfully for many summers. Usually open between May and October. Had just simple pole cord speakers you hung on the car window. No heaters so that limited the season to the warmer months. Had nightly shows at dusk during the week. 2d shows on Friday and Saturday nights Concession stand with all the normal drive-in fare for food.

Closed in the 1970s and redeveloped. Now Rothrock Nissan
