Here are a couple of shots of the Hi-Way Drive-in Theatre located along Route 30 in Latrobe, PA. During the spring & fall, they have flea markets on the weekends. During the summer they still have movies every night. They still have the old cement posts that use to hold the microphone but the sound is now via your radio on a certain AM station.


UPDATE 11/10 : The Hi-Way Drive-in never opened for the 2011 season in April this year. The plans for the Drive-in is to tear it down sometime this Summer and build a CVS Pharmacy in its place. Many thanks to David Hughes for update. 11-10

The Bath Drive-in of Bath, NY sports the familiar lettering "closed for the season" on its marquee. Let's hope this is only temporary. 11-00


UPDATE 07/07 : Just a note that Bath drive in has been closed since the fall of 2005, a very sad state for many of us here. However, as of July 20, 2007 it has re-opened with the Rat Movie and Pirates 3. It will be open weekends only hopefully for a long long time. Many thanks to Dave Bentley for update. 07-07

UPDATE 12/10 : The Bath Drive-in was open for the 2007 season. In the Spring of 2008, they re-named the Bath Drive-in to Papa's Place Drive-in. The drive-in only lasted for one season under the new name. The drive-in was closed after the 2008 season. . Many thanks to David Hughes for update. 12-10

UPDATE 12/13 : The Bath Drive-in is gone, destroyed to build apartments It's a shame that drive-ins are rapidly going the way of the dodo bird. Many thanks to Connie Weller for update. 12-13
