I’ve seen another copy of this ad with a date attached of August 12th, 1949, which is open to interpretation. Was that the Whitestone’s grand launching, or just the opening of that particular double feature? “Suddenly Last Spring” was originally released in 1947, and “Caged Fury” in 1948.

Further research shows August 12th, 1949 as the official opening date. The drive-in was owned and operated by the family of future mogul Sumner Redstone, using some of the profits earned from their Sunrise Drive-In at Valley Stream in Nassau County, just over the NYC borderline.
