Previous Names: Buffalo Autoscope Drive-In
The Buffalo Autoscope Drive-In was the second autoscope drive in, and opened on August 1, 1954 with Marlene Dietrich in “Rancho Notorious”. It was originally owned and operated by Tom Smith of Urbana, who opened the first (much smaller) Autoscope in nearby Urbana in 1953. Both Autoscope’s were open in 1954, but then the Urbana Autoscope closed. This drive-in had space for 122 cars, and operated as an Autoscope for about 20 years, which I think is the longest any drive-in ever operated as an Autoscope.
Eventually in the 1970’s, it was converted to a conventional drive in with space for 250 cars, and was renamed Highway 65 Drive In, which closed in 1997.
