I am slowly restoring an old car I bought last year and just found some old papers under the front seat. One of those papers is a kind of “frequent flyer” card handed out by this theater. The card is partially rotted away but seems to say that if you pay to watch 6 movies you get to watch the 7th for free. This card has only the “1” punched and a rubber-stamped August 25, 1966 in black ink. I guess my old Dodge spent some time at the Starlite Drive-In! I’d include an image if I could but that doesn’t seem to be possible. Also, the theater address as shown on the card is simply “alternate Route 22 — Easton”

I ran the Starlite dr-in 1974-75 & remodeled the snack bar. It was owned by National Amusements or Redstone Theatres. I also managed the Bethlehem Dr-in for a while in the 1970’s for the same company. I remember a time when Walter Fatzinger the projectionist couldn’t get a picture on the screen because someone stuffed a popcorn tub in the proj. porthole…

I saw many epics at this theater, including Ben-Hur, El CID, and King of Kings. Such a shame it was razed, but that’s life.
