1968 photo added via Kevin Patrick. His copy read: Meadville’s Airway Drive-in opened in 1946, and lasted into the 1980s closing due to waning ticket sales.

Full description per Kevin Patrick:

AIRWAY DRIVE-IN operated on the opposite side of the US 19 & US 6-322 intersection as the Port Meadville Airport just west of Meadville. Opened in 1946, it was the first drive-in theater on Pennsylvania’s section of US 6, and survived until 1985. The Airway was the main outdoor movie screen for Crawford County set close to county seat and population center at Meadville. There was, however, another drive-in to the west that was better located to serve summer vacationers at Conneaut Lake. The Lakeside Drive-in on PA Route 18 about a mile north of US 6 opened in 1949, and closed the same year as the Airway.

Today, the property is empty with only the faint outline of drive-in remaining. It sits on the east side of US 6 and the south side of the Meadville Mall road.
