In the days of the Drive In Movies…

By Silver Blue

November 1999. State College, Pennsylvania. The Starlite.

Undoubtedly, it had seen better days.

However, even in that day and time, it was reasonably priced.

I had gone up for Thanksgiving with my (then) housemate, Tom Rose. We drove by, and he humoured me by stopping and letting me take these shots.

CORRECTION. I had the wrong STARLITE Drive In listed in my original post.

The Drive In is still in business! According to http://www.driveinmovie.com/PA.htm
State College (Centre County) Pennsylvania
Starlite Drive-in Theatre:  814-237-0001
located at 1100 Benner Pike

Finally, the marquee, which didn’t even have the name of the Drive In on it, anymore:

I wonder, some 13 years later, if the marquee or anything has been updated.

Silver Blue, who remembers when the silver screen used to be something special, and an evening at the drive-in was a family affair.
