Kenmawr Drive-In

This was a drive-in located to the west of Pittsburgh outside the community of McKees Rocks. It was opened on July 2, 1949. I remember seeing “Night of the Living Dead” there. It closed on September 28, 1986.

Opened July 2, 1949. One of many Pittsburgh area drive-ins to close after the 1986 season. Located in Kennedy Township at Coraopolis & Fleming Park Rds. (PA 51). Stanford Courts housing development now occupies the Kenmawr Drive-In site.

The Kenmawr Drive-In was a favorite of pop singer Lou Christie, who lived in nearby Glenwillard. He used to mention this one during between-song banter, usually before “Rhapsody In The Rain”.

Operated by the Hanna Theater Service in the late 1950s.

The Kenmawr Drive-In opened in 1950 the same year asa the Dependable Drive-In. The Dependable is now a four screen and still in operation.

Why the name Kenmawr?

I really can’t 100% answer that but it appears a lot of places in that general area have Kenmawr tied to their name, schools, churches and the like. No idea what it means though.
