A moment of silence for the passing of a fine, classic drive-in theater. Photos from the final night coming soon.

The Beaver County Times' website, Timesonline, has reported that this is the Kane Road’s final weekend. The movies featured this Friday, Saturday and Sunday are Blue Jasmine and World War Z. There will also be a flea market on Saturday from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

I don’t have confirmation of the exact reasons, Chuck. It may have something to do with the transferring to digital equiment, but that’s only speculation. A definite fact is that the Kane Road Drive-In is going to be sadly, sadly missed. I’ve been going there since 1997.

I found out that the final tentative night of the Kane Road is going to be Sunday, September 15. This all depends on attendance in the next couple of weekends. So, for all who read this, mark this date down but call the drive-in first for verification.

It is with deep regret that I report the upcoming end of an era as the Kane Road Drive-In, after 59 wonderful years, will be closing its doors for good in a few weekends. There was a tailgate party this past Saturday the 10th, but I missed it since I didn’t know about it until now (ARGH!). But I do plan on being there on their final night. I suggested to owner Steve Gray to show a couple of classic films on their last night to go out with a big bang…something like Rebel Without A Cause, Love Me Tender, A Hard Day’s Night, West Side Story, Viva Las Vegas, Bye Bye Birdie, or something like that.

Wow, a theatre where change overs are actually made. It parked 350 cars in the late 50’s and was owned by HANNA THEATRE SERVICE which owned quite a few screens in that state.

If you want genuine drive-in nostalgia, the Kane Road Drive-In is the place to go! 98% of the lot still has speakers, including the classic round Motiographs! Two separate signs out on the road include the marquee with Coca-Cola logo and ENTRANCE sign with classic Sprite logo. Snack bar includes three 40’s style candy machines. The drive-in itself is on a reverse incline with playground in front of the screen. Located in a residential area, across from an elementary school. Owned by Steve Gray. Used to have flea markets, but apparently have been discontinued since the words FLEA MARKET are covered on both side of the sign at the Kane Road turnoff on PA 151.
