Glen Drive-In

This independently owned drive-in was first opened May 23, 1958 near the upstate New York resort area of Lake George. A second screen was added on May 28, 1977. It has parking for 800 cars and its season runs from April or May until the Labor Day weekend in September.

Each screen runs a double bill of first run films with reasonable admission prices of $7 per adult and $3 for children aged three to eleven (babies up to age two get in for free). Films are scheduled nightly, Friday thru Thursday during the season.

The Glen Drive-In features both FM radio transmission and old-fashioned wired speakers for its audio presentation. Business is still going quite strong for both screens, with sell-outs not an uncommon occurence.

It was nice to experience a classic old style drive-in movie while in America in a place that looks like it hasn’t changed much since the 50’s, I think it was like $7 for 2 movies which is amazing value. It was great getting watching a movie while lying down in the back of a truck, an experience and night I’ll never forget

According to the Glens Falls Post-Star, the Queensbury Zoning Board of Appeals approved plans for a second screen in March 1977. Estimated cost was $46,000 for the 80x40-foot screen. The Glen was owned by John Gardner and managed by John Gardner Jr.

In 2012, the Glens Falls Post-Star wrote that John Gardner opened the Glen in 1958, son John Jr. “took over” in 1990, and grandson Brett Gardner “has taken over operations”.
