About Transit Drive-in

The nearest outdoor cinema for Buffalo is also one of only three quads ? 4screen Drive-ins in New York, among the 29 Drive-ins operating in the state this Season (the others being the Hi-way, near Catskill, and the Vintage, at Avon). It is also by capacity (1200 cars), New York's largest Drive-in Movie Theatre; although still very much a family-run enterprise. And that's a long story .. picture shows being an old tradition for the Cohen family, which acquired its first theatre in 1927 .. and then 3 others within the decade that followed. At that point they embarked on constructing their own theatre palace- the Stueben, in Hornell, NY. Later on, after acquiring the Allendale Theater in Buffalo, they went outdoors with the construction of their first Drive-in theatre (the Van Buren in Dunkirk, NY), and two years later, they opened the Sheridan Drive-in near Buffalo, which they would operate for 31 years. Six years after opening the Sheridan, they then purchased the Transit Drive-in (1957), which has been passed-down through 3 generations. Continually improved and expanded over the years (including the addition of a 19-hole miniature golf course for the amusement of early arrivals), the Transit is currently operated by the grandson of the founders of this theatre dynasty. It's four screens are lit with double-features, seasonally, April thru October; on weekends only in Spring & Fall, and 7 nites during the peak summer months. Movie audio is provided with localized FM radio broadcasts. Admission: $9 for Adults (ages 12&up); $4 for Children (ages 5-11); wee folk aged 4 and under are admitted free, as are any well behaved four-legged kids, so bring the Dog .. and bring-along your laptop or tablet (the Transit is also a free Wi-Fi hotspot).
