The Anna Drive-In opened in 1953, located at the intersection of Routes 146 and 51. It was originally operated by Rodgers Theatres and could accomodate 428 cars. It was later part of the Kerasotes chain.

The Anna Drive-In closed around 1980 and was razed in 1997 to make way for retail and residential development.
