Pioneer Drive-In

The Pioneer Drive-In opened in August 19, 1959 with June Allyson in “Stranger in My Arms” & James Cagney in “Never Steal Anything Small”. Car capacity was 700 cars. The drive-in was operated by Dubinsky Bothers and was still listed as open in the mid-1980’s. The site is now the Autorama RV Center.
