The married owners died of COVID-19 in October 2021 a week apart. The drive-in is closed until further notice. I doubt it reopens.

Closed for good July 18th, per mall security. Took pics.

Permanently closed, per Regal’s website. According to local media, Regal was being sued for $300k in back rent.

Never renovated nor repaired in 23 years of operation. More expensive than some newer & nicer theaters closer to Pittsburgh. Good riddance!

Dying mall in a lower middle class area plus shrinking movie-going audience overall plus expiring lease. Damn shame. Beautiful place to see a movie.

Stopped by this place while my wife took pre-wedding pictures. Took a few pics & uploaded them here.

The owners were able to acquire two used, affordable digital projectors late last summer. With little competition and the insane popularity, my hometown theatre isn’t going anywhere.

@telliott No, just over saturation. The Phoenix Big Cinemas 20, formerly Destinta, is about two miles away in a better location. There is nothing in the general vicinity of the old theatre.

@muviebuf The old theatre building shares a parking lot with a WalMart. A true two-headed monster took down the Greater Pittsburgh Drive-In.

The street view above is wrong. Photo needs to be about a mile to the south. Grew up about two miles from there. Wonderful place to watch a movie.

Demolished about a year ago. Now the site of a Sheetz, a regional convenience gas station, a hotel & a small strip mall.
