Hyde Park Drive-In - taken in July 2005

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1950 as the Auto-Vision Drive-In, the Hyde Park Drive-In has been a local haunt for decades and, at $6 per person, the drive-in is a cheap alternative to the local multiplex.

In 2000, the theater was sold to Scenic Hudson Inc., a Poughkeepsie-based environmental group. While the previous owner is still running the drive-in, no one knows what will happen to the Hyde Park Drive-In.

Many local residents were concerned that the Hyde Park Drive-In may close after the summer of 2001. So far, the current owners have refused comment on their plans and movies continue.

It was still open for the 2007 season, and there is a farmers market there on Saturday mornings in the fall and summer. There is talk of Senic Hudson, which owns the property, building a welcome center or some other type of tourist oriented facility linking the FDR home and library across the road with some hiking trails to Eleanor Roosevelts house (Val Kill) nearby. Its future as a drive in is unknown.

I’ve been going to the HP Drive-In for years and years. I’m so glad it’s still around… We almost lost it a few years ago.
