This theater was a beautiful family-oriented drive-in that served Nothern Suffolk and Eastern Nassau Counties from its opening in 1956 to its closing in around 1977. For two decades, the 110’s Saturday lineup consisted of a triple-feature!

Sadly, the 110 Drive-In was destroyed in 1982. Today, its former site is occupied by the Marriott Long Island Hotel, and not a single trace of the 110 Drive-In remains.

Just sad as it always is to read about the old Drive-ins.

Here is a link to my tribute art sign to the Route 110 Drive In Theater!

P.S. YES! I know it’s not a Johnny All Weather Drive in but I needed a kooky character on there.

I watched an old flick on TCM called “The Marrying Kind” starring Judy Holliday and Aldo Ray. They go the Route 110 Drive-In and there is actual footage of the huge marquee. If anyone had this film on DVD it would be great to take screen shots.

That would be good since no pix of the theatre seem to be around.

I posted a photo of the marquee listing Run Appaloosa, Run and Snoopy Come Home as the features. The former was a 1966 film, but Snoopy Come Home was released in August 1972. So the photo is probably from August 1972. Probably within a few years of the end of this theater, judging by the prior comments.

moviegoer! Thank you for that photo! It may be THE ONLY one that exists! A friend of mine on Facebook- who lives in Melville-was at that very show! Thank you again! It really means a lot to me.
