Opened on 18/7/1948 with a cartoon(not named) and “It happened on 5th Avenue”.

This Drive-In did not reopen at the start of the 2017 season due to the death of longtime owner John Nagelschmidt in an accident in April while getting the drive-in ready. After several months of prep work his son and daughter reopened the theater this past Friday, July 14th. The link is to an article about the reopening.

The Sundance Kid Drive-In replaced there 1949 screen tower which blew down last winter. It was all about $200,000.It is big one…

Sad news. :(

I hope insurance can pay for a new one. They should call Selby Screen Towers for an estimate.

Someone must have some nice memories to share about this place. I was there as a kid, I used to like the cartoons that always started at dusk, the fun intermission trailers about the snack bar, and I clearly recall the B&W trailer for bug repellent coils called “PIC” featuring a bug with a bronx accent drawing on a car windshleid, saying “Don’t you believe it – it don’t woik!” I can still picture the heavy old speakers that hung on the window glass, and the humps that the cars parked on to lean back. If they’re using radio sound now, I wonder if it’s stereo? As a teen, I recall getting a kick out of the pizza and french fries… I miss that place, and I’m very glad it’s still there and being taken care of.

This is the same theatre that is also listed here as being in Fulton, NY. Someone should take out one of them. It is close to Fulton but in Minetto. I always heard it was called Midway because it is Mid-Way between Oswego, and Fulton, NY.
