In 1956 it parked 400 cars with Harry Martin running the Drive-in.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle wrote in 1991 that the Silver Lake opened Sept. 23, 1949, showing Body and Soul starring John Garfield. That article said the drive-in’s capacity was 420 cars.

Harry Martin and his wife Mary built the Silver Lake and operated it until selling it to Jake Stefanon before the 1966 season. Jake’s son Rick bought it from his dad in 1993 and runs it now.
