The Main Line Drive-In closed in September 1975 after a months-long run of “Jaws”.

Kencmcintyre’s link is dead, but if you go to Historic Aerial’s website and type in “Route 30 Devon, Pennsylvania”, you’ll find the drive-in theatre, beginning in 1957. According to Kerry Segrave’s book ‘Drive-In Theaters: A History from Their Inception in 1933’, the inventor of the drive-in, Richard M. Hollingshead, Jr., and his wife lived close to this theatre, and they sometimes visited it to watch movies.

Strange.It is listed in 1956 Motion picture Almanac but with no info on cars it holds or who owns it.1,000 cars seems alot for such a small city.Don’t make sense.
