I went to the Rock Hill Drive-In one time during the summer of 1963. I had never been to a drive-in before or since. My family and I went to see “Tom Jones.” Since it was a double-feature, we saw the second feature first, one of the British “Carry On” films. Then there was a long intermission and coming attractions. At that point my younger brother, who was about 5 at the time, started crying that he wanted to go home. Since we couldn’t get him to stop, we had to leave before ever seeing the main feature. I do remember seeing the great trailer for “How the West Was Won,” one of my all-time favorite films, it was the high-point of my visit to the Rock Hill Drive-In.

Yeah, I noticed he had 510,but my book says 425.I have had CT readers tell me a good many of these books used,the parking on cars is sometimes way off.

I’ve just uploaded a picture of the entrance taken in June 2006. Drove back into the lot and there’s nothing to see. It looked like the image linked to by rivest266 above.

A more accurate address for this theater is 19 Glen Wild Rd, Rock Hill, NY 12775. This points directly to the entrance road. Old Drive In Road is actually the entrance.

Please update.

The screen was standing until April 2004. Now only the entrance road and concession building foundations remain.
