On my day trip to Lockport NY to see the Palace I drove by this drive-in and saw the 4 screens! I also noticed at the entrance the famous sad and happy theatrical faces. Worth seeing!

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) – The lake effect blast that buried the Ralph, forced the Buffalo Bills to move their home game against the New York Jets to Detroit. As a result, a special tailgating party was held at the Transit Drive-in Theater in Lockport Monday night. Fans were chanting, tailgating, and cheering on the Buffalo Bills in the lot. “We’re all one. The team and the fans are all one,” fan Matt Rosenhahn said. Some fans said they wanted to see the game in Detroit, but couldn’t make it there. “We were going to go to Detroit and we decided we couldn’t make it. So we were going to come here because there’s going to be a bunch of people,” Kevin St. Laurent, a Bills fan said. “We tailgate every week and we couldn’t make it out to Detroit,” Dan Frisicaro, a Bills season ticket holder said. Frisicaro had the grill going, flags up and brought the cooler and chairs to the lot. “This is the only chance you get to see the Bills on a screen this big.” Fans said this was much better than watching the game at home. “You know what, at home you don’t get as much of an atmosphere,” Rosenhahn said. “This is good, because you’ve got the Buffalo fan camaraderie going on right now.” “I’ve got my cousin in town and he’s from California. I wanted to give him a Bills experience and this is the closest we’re going to get,” DJ Mocarski said. Anthony Mocarski of California said the atmosphere at the drive-in was great. “Even though it’s a little cold it doesn’t bother me. I’m just happy to be out here with some of the best fans Buffalo has to offer.” Diehard fans explained they were happy to cheer on their team whether it was in Detroit, at the Ralph or at a drive-in. “Go Bills!” Frisicaro said. Admission was free at the drive-in and all proceeds from the snack stand went to the Buffalo City Mission
