There are two drive-in theaters within a half hour of Altoona, PA (Carroltown and Portage). The ones in town closed in the early-mid 80s, and are now a strip mall and a warehouse complex. 

We have no drive-in food, because Altoona is lame. We keep hoping for even a Sonic, but it keeps not happening. 

Any car events going on there?  Since drive-ins are about cars you’d think they would be a great place for car guys to show off their cars.  

I've never seen them advertise a classic car night or anything else interesting like that.

I love the Drive-In.  We make a day of it because we do have to drive a good hour or so to get to it.  But for the money you really can't beat it.  Two to three movies (Three if it is a long weekend) normally good ones that we want to see.  My kids have grown up at this place, even stating that the memories they have are good ones that they will share with their kids.  As the time has gone on, our Drive-In has gone through improvements.  A revitalization of sorts. If my classic car had a radio, it would be there for the classic movie nights they have. 

 

That's what a boom box is for. Wait, do they still make those?

In reply to snailmont5oh :I doubt they still make boom boxes anymore but once I put out that I was looking for one I suddenly got 5 dropped off for free.   I suspect if I hadn’t put my foot down I’d be drowning in them.

We have three drive in movies near by, two older ones we go to regularly and a new one we haven’t been to yet.
