Previous Names: Fick's Drive-in
Located along Route 40 between Grindstone and Uniontown. A three-screener running mostly first-run twin bills. In operation since opening on April 26, 1949, it began as Fick’s Drive-In started by Izzie Ficks who had not only the drive-in but a restaurant, motel and bowling alley across the highway. As a single screen drive-in, Fick’s Drive-In had a capacity for 400 cars. By 1955 it was operated by Basle and Laskey Entr. and F.D. Moore Theatre Services. On March 26, 1959 it was renamed Brownsville Drive-In.
Purchased in the 1970’s or thereabouts and during the first outdoor shakeout, began running adult fare. Twin screened in the 1980’s and tripled in the 1990’s. Turned back to family fare in the mid 1980’s. Does bangup business during the summer months.
