Why the name Malta?

The Malta has its own historical marker out front, erected by the city of Malta in 2007. It reads: Malta Drive-In Signs / Open-air theater started in 1949 by Sarto and Leona Smaldone, drive-In purchased in 1988 by brothers Ed and Tom Caro, in operation for over 50 years.

The Malta added a second screen in 2008. It converted to digital projection during the 2012-2013 offseason. The Ballston Journal interviewed co-owner Edward Caro about the switch in March 2013.

I worked there the summer of 1963 for Sarto
I have a picture I took a couple of years ago…looks the same as it did 40 years ago
