Located in Orefield, Pennsylvania, Shankweiler’s is the oldest Drive-in Movie Theatre in America, and has been in continuous operation since 1934.
I just got a note from Paul & Susan from Shankweiler’s that their last show for this, their 76th season, will be this Saturday September 12th. If you’re in the area, stop by and check out the sweet story “Up” – I dare you not to get teary eyed at the beginning.
We haven’t had a chance to get there ourselves this year- where DOES the summer go? But this place definitely belongs on the Retro Roadmap.
We look forward to their 2010 season and promise an up close and personal look at the place then. Until then, put this on your list of fun things to do next year- we’ll need something to get us through the cold winter!
