About Overlook Drive-in

East of the Hudson River, this is the nearest operating Drive-in for Manhattan and metro NYC, and for those who believe that for a picture worth seeing, it's worth seeing the largest picture .. THIS is the largest movie screen of any kind for the New York metropolitan area. It has remained lit seasonally and consecutively since 1949. And speaking of getting the larger picture, no other Drive-in in the tristate area provides a better view of the Drive-in experience as it looked during the heyday of America's love affair with Cinema al fresco ? when the vast grass field beneath the huge screen (as tall as a 6-story building) is dotted with hundreds of people outside of their cars on summer weekends .. on blankets and lawn chairs at this 12-acre site well-bordered by tall trees on all sides. The Overlook has a capacity for up to 750 cars (despite it's above-average capacity, do plan on arriving early on the peak season weekends for a spot!). The screen is always lit with a double-feature, for less than a single movie costs at most indoor theatres. The traditional Drive-in pole speakers have been replaced by radio broadcast (87.9 FM). They are open seasonally, from mid-April to mid-October, every nite of the week. Admission: $9 for adults (ages 12&up); $6 for Children (ages 5-11); wee folk 4&under admitted free. The most popular item at the Snack Bar here: their char-broiled Black Angus burgers served on a crispy Kaiser Roll. Monday night is Bargain Night, when they feature a reduced admission ($3 off the usual adult ticket price). Ticket Booth is CASH only (although Credit Cards are accepted at the Snack Bar).
