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.

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.

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

The screen tower came down last week on October 21. Everything else from the speakers and poles, snack bar and playground equipment was already gone and the field was overgrown.

There was a house under the screen too.

David Coppock: Of course if I had had my way I would’ve bought the Kane Road Drive-In and moved into the screen tower house. It would’ve been so cool to live there and keep the drive-in going, and I couldn’t be the only one who had the same sentiments.

Owner Steve Gray passed away on January 2, 2020 at age 91. He owned and ran the Kane Road Drive-In for its entire duration. Last time I saw him was the day after the screen tower was torn down; I ran out there after work (since I work in nearby Moon Township) and took one of the cement blocks that had the black print from the back. Steve and I had a nice talk that day about the Kane Road and other things in general. He was a good friend; I really miss him and the Kane Road.
