Del-Sego - Oneonta, NY

Located almost on the line between Delaware & Otsego counties, about 2 miles out of Oneonta. Built in 1948 by owners Bert Mitchell and William Warnken, the Del-Sego Drive-In was named after the counties it served: Delaware and Otsego. It featured room for 544 cars, a playground, miniature golf course, 60-foot high screen tower and a 40x100 foot screen. It opened on April 28, 1948 with Teresa Wright in “Persued”. It was closed in 1981.

Opened on 28/4/1948 with “Pursued”. The site is now a supermarket(Price Chopper Plaza). The entrance road(and matquee?) may still be there?

The Nov. 4, 1963 issue of Boxoffice revisited the Del-Sego, which had just expanded its mini golf, with a two-page article including photos.

Owner-operator William Warnken jr. said the lighting over the courses “affords a dual purpose in that it gives me just about the right degree of ‘Moonlight’ which has cut down on speaker thefts 75 per cent.”
