Welcome to the Malta Drive-in Theatre of ... Malta, NY. This drive-in features a very unique retro looking marquee complete with balls on top and the letters "MALTA" in different color blocks, similar to the ABC blocks of childhood.

The drive-in screen, ticket booth, snack bar, and lot appear to be in good shape.

Johnstown, Pennsylvania remains a great place to catch an open air show. Can you resist the all-American colors of the Silver Drive-In Theatre?

The marquee's display of "movies" is roadside advertisement at its best.

Angola, New York is home to the Grand View Drive-in. Featuring businesses in the screen tower, including a beauty salon out front, the Grand View makes efficient use of its space. Now you can stop, do your hair, and catch a feature presentation to boot!

UPDATE 12/10 : The Grandview Drive-in closed up back in October of 2005 after the 2005 drive-in season. The drive-in was torn down in March of 2009 to make way for a new Walmart Super Center which is open now. Many thanks to David Hughes for update. 12-10

UPDATE 03/12 : Yes it was torn down, NO NO WAL-MART! they got shot down in courtt and were'n't allowed to build! The owner of land tore down the drive-in to spite everyone who wanted it saved. He passed away over a year ago, and we are hopeful to be REBUILDING! Non Profit Corp. being formed now to purchase the land and rebuild it! The screen and Snackbar will have to be rebuild but all else is ready, foundations all still there. Many thanks to Tony for update. 03-12
