The Whitestone Bridge Drive-In was the most famous drive-in in New York City and it opened August 12, 1949 with Paulette Goddard in “Suddenly it’s Spring” and Richard Denning in “Caged Fury”. It had a capacity for 850-cars and was still operating in 1957 as the Whitestone Bridge Drive-In when it was operated by Micheal Redstone & Liggett-Florin Booking Service.
It was later renamed Whitestone Drive-In and was twinned in 1978. A third screen was later added and the car capacity was increased to 1,200. It operated into the early-1980’s when it was demolished and the Whitestone Multiplex Cinemas were built on the site and opened in late-1984. It was closed in 2013 and has its own page on Cinema Treasures.
