Boxoffice, Aug. 11, 1958: “George Tice … is a partner-owner with George Saittis, who together … own and operate the Twin Hi-Way Drive-In west of Crafton.”

The original big screen tower was torn down yesterday (1/17). The snack bar and second screen are still standing at this point.

Uh-oh. The letters on the marquee have been removed and the site fenced off.

A moment of silence as it was regretfully announced last night that the Twin Hi-Way Drive-In is now officially closed for good. Final night of operation was November 1, 2015

There are some dark clouds starting to brew overhead here. Sheetz is apparently looking to wipe out another drive-in (and a piece of American culture) by building on the Twin Hi-Way Drive-In site…which makes absolutely no sense since there’s already a Sheetz down the road from the drive-in.

I am so glad this drive-in reopened. We always go out a couple times a year. My kids really love it. Last year we went out on the night that Kennedy Township was shooting off July 4th fireworks. We watched the movie and saw fireworks above the screen. What a double feature!

I drove past the Twin-Hi Way this morning and saw that the second screen is now in place.

I was there for the 2008 season. The second drive-in I ever went to. The first was the Colonial Drive-in but that is a sad dead place. The people there where nice and have a great selection and price for the concession. $6.50 for double feature and they also did triple on the weekends. Can’t wait to go back.

I just drove past the Twin Hi-Way this morning. The 2008 season has just ended, but a SECOND screen is being added and should be up by next season, thus giving the name of the drive-in a double meaning (# of screens and the original dual U.S. Route designation of the legendary Lincoln Highway it proudly stands on)

July 3 was actually an unofficial trial reopening as I found out that night, but with over 100 cars there, I thought it was successful. It was great seeing the Twin Hi-Way back in action for the first time since its last season in 1996. They are open daily now, and the official grand reopening date will be advertised in the local newspaper soon.

GRAND RE-OPENING JULY 3!!! The features are “Surf’s Up” and “Spider Man 3”. Of course, I will be there good and early so that I can give a full report to my friends from the (defunct) Drive-In Theater Fan Club. Hope to see a big crowd there!

Just went to the website for an update. They had to fix some sewage problems. No opening date yet. Flea markets may come in the future!

Does anyone remember the old airplane that was in front of the theater?

Does anyone have the story about that?

This is more great news for Pittsburgh!!!

The screen is painted on front and back!

The workers on site tell me that the plan is to open the weekend of May 25th – tentatively.

The projectors have been upgraded to 6,000 watts.

The playground is gone – as far as I know, only Kane Road still has a playground in the area.

I just drove past the Twin Hi-Way this morning; they just started giving the back of the screen a fresh paint job. Hopefully, they will keep the lettering the same as they did with the marquee. Also, I think the pavillion and sand volleyball court that was built in front of the screen a few years ago have been razed, I’m not sure. I’m still waiting anxiously for word on the grand reopening date; both side of the marquee still say REOPENING SPRING 2007 at this point.

At this point, the box office has been refurbished and freshly painted and the marquee has been completely refurbished with brand new letters in the same exact font.

It’s looking great! This was the drive-in that me and my family saw
the original “Star Wars” at when it came out in 1977. I can hardly wait for its grand reopening!
