Opened with “Liar, liar” and “Dante’s peak”.
The Vintage opened on June 20, 1997, the work of Paul Dean and David Philips. On Opening Day, it had one screen up and a second under construction.
When the Baltimore Sun profiled it in June 1998, Dean was called “the owner” and Philips was not mentioned. At the time, Dean was “planning to build a third screen by next spring.”
In 2008, Dean told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle that “his original investment in equipment was in the mid-six-figure range, and that his investment has been a good one.”
After about a decade of three screens, the Vintage added its fourth screen in the 2009-2010 offseason.
According to their website this drive-in does have 4 screens.
Great name for a drive-in.
Whenever I visit my family in Rochester, my cousin and I always take his two girls to see the latest family movie. I noticed this year that they’ve added a fourth screen; the more the merrier!
I visited the area this weekend and my friends took me to the Vintage to see “Everyone’s Hero”. It was quite a time trip for someone from New Jersey, the state where the first drive-in was born and which now has only one, sadly.
Actually, the Drive-In to which I was referring is the Delevan Drive-In which is located in Delevan, N.Y. not Holland.
Probably the Vintage Drive-In was one the major factors in demise of the Park theatre in Avon. The Park wasn’t open in the during the summer months. Drive-Ins seem to do okay in western N.Y., there’s a small one (single screen) in Holland, N.Y. which I try to get to once a year.
