Lockport Drive-In Screen 1968

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Lockport Drive-In opened July 28, 1946. Over the years the drive-in changed owners several times. At one point the drive-in was showing porn movies, until the residents who lived on the hill behind the drive-in complained to the town. In the end, the drive-in was neglected and addmission was $5.00 per carload for second run movies. It was closed in 1987. All that is left standing is the snack bar.

This was a one screen drive-in. I used to see it on the way to my grandmothers in the “Little Italy” section of Lockport NY. There was room for about 250 cars there according to a website. The original owner was Anthony Ragusa. I remember it was torn down in 1988 The Google map doesn’t show it but there is a couple old buildings still on site like the projection and snack bar buildings but you wouldn’t know by looking if you didn’t know it once stood there.There is a lot of garbage on site.

A closer address (at least for Google) is 7656 Rochester Road, Gasport, NY.

As indicated, the property is covered in garbage, but you can still make out the ramps and the projection booth/concession stand is still there. http://tinyurl.com/hzr83u4
