News About This Theater
- Aug 4, 2011 — Storied history of Hyde Park theatres
Opened on July 28, 1950 as the Hyde Park Auto-Vision Theatre with Joan Fontaine in “You Gotta Stay Happy” & Ann Blythe in “Red Canyon”. Later renamed Hyde Park Drive-In, it has been a local haunt for decades and, at $6 per person, the drive-in is a cheap alternative to the local multiplex.
In 2000, the theatre was sold to Scenic Hudson Inc., a Poughkeepsie-based environmental group. While the previous owner is still running the drive-in, no one knows what will happen to the Hyde Park Drive-In.
Many local residents were concerned that the Hyde Park Drive-In may close after the summer of 2001. So far, the current owners have refused comment on their plans and movies continue.
