I found it, its an indoor seating area that is open on one side and faces one of the screens. Sunrise Drive-In in Valley Stream had something similar.

Okay, so it doesn’t really have its own screen. Your watching one of the movies on the outdoor screen.

It is hard to tell from that photo. There appears to be something there. Either glass or some sort of screening like a screen window.

Why is there no listing for the hard top Bay theatre. When I had to go to summer camp with the army we would weekend in Alex Bay. I was wandering around the street once time and came upon this good sized theatre. The doors were wide open. I never actually went back to see a performance if it was open. And I question that because there was a small neon sign which said Bay Theatre and had an arrow which was lying on the floor of the auditorium, leading me to believe the theatre was closed. In hind sight I’m sorry I never checked it out. Who would have thought that forty plus years later I’d find this site on my computer?

Still working on getting the hardtop up – working with the local librarian. Hardtop was on Bethune off Church. Building has been razed and part of the site it a restaurant.

Heading can’t be right. Three screens, 60 cars.
