One of the drive-ins nearest to Downtown Pittsburgh.

Here is a 1957 aerial photo. I used 132 Ben Avon Heights Road to find the drive-in. That is the address of the Giant Eagle market that replaced the theater.

Is there a camp called Camp Horne nearby the former Drive-in site?

TomMc11 on May 30, 2018 at 1:21 pm

There was. It was created in 1910 as a private camp for the employees of the Joseph Horne Dry Goods Company. That company went on to become the Hornes Department Store chain. The camp is now Avonworth Community Park.

A few items to correct:

1) The second was up before 1980. Aerials as early as 1973 show 2 acreens.

2) The entrance and 2nd screen is now Giant Eagle. The original screen is now Home Depot.
