In the 1960’s and ‘70s the Allegany Drive In was operated by Nino Bordinaro who at that time also operated the Palace and Olean Theatres in downtown Olean, the Limestone Drive-In in Limestone and in 1972 built the Portville Drive In on the east side of Olean. According to rumors the Portville Drive In was supposedly to be the replacement for the Allegany Drive In. However the Allegany Drive In continued in operation until 1995.
