Great sounds like it will be around for a while. Sad about the Fair Oaks

I have been going to the Fair Oaks Drive In since 1997. The cost of going digital was too much for the former operator and owner. Plus after 23 years of running the DI, he was getting ready to move on. It was a very busy with many cars squeezing in on a nice spring summer night.

I hope that some other operator takes over and opens for the season in April or May of this year. The main screen at the Fair Oaks. Is the biggest in all of NYS

The Warwick’s web site has an excellent, updated history on its About Us page. Its early details match up with the 1950s Theatre Catalogs. The second screen went up in 1982, and the third must have been just before 1995.
