Middlehope Drive-in Theater, Newburgh

Yasinsac writes that this 450-car site on Route 9W is “one the most intact abandoned drive-in theaters I have come across in the Hudson Valley, with ticket booths, speaker poles (minus working equipment) and a well boarded-up and well-preserved projection building with restrooms and a concession stand. The screen needs reinstallation of a few panels, however.” First opened in 1950, the theater has not operated since October 1987.
