Opened on 25/6/1953 with “Red mountain” and “Against all flags”.
Good question NYozoner…
In the 1953 aerial photo, you can see an older drive-in to the west being torn down, and the newer drive-in to the east being built. In the 1958 aerial photo, the drive-in to the east is fully operational, while the drive-in to the west is just a ghost. The drive-in to the east was obviously the Roosevelt. What was the original name of the drive-in to the west which was rebuilt or replaced by the Roosevelt?
Architect was David Supowitz of Philadelphia.
The correct address is: 2329 E Lincoln Hwy, Langhorne, PA 19047 It is now a Target store.
There was so many drive-ins in PA and on the Lincoln Hwy that it get’s confusing.
My thinking is maybe they moved the Roosevelt Drive-In for some reason??
This drive-in opened on June 25th, 1953. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this drive-in.
Also uploaded an 1953 aerial photo showing that another drive-in just west of the Roosevelt under construction (must had been halted) and another drive-in construction starting up. An 1958 aerial shows the never opened drive-in fading away and the Roosevelt open.
By the 80’s it was strictly a porn theater.
266 Lincoln Highway, Fairless Hills, PA 19030 was incorrect. 266 West Lincoln Highway, Langhorne, PA 19047 is correct. Thanks!
hello everyone. siliconsam, the photo shown in google maps is not the roosevelt drive-in, it is the u.s. 1 north twin drive-in theater. the property where the roosevelt was is now a target shopping center.
When I was a kid in the late sixties there seemed to be a new Disney movie with Dean Jones every summer. Is he still alive?
No shopping center show in Google Maps, but the place sure looks run over with vegetation!
Here is an August 1969 ad from the same source:
