About Bay Drive-inThe big screen at the Bay was first lit-up in 1968 and has been in continuous operation ever since. The present owners - since purchasing it in 1982, have gone to great expense and have done a really extraordinary job on the expansion & improvements. A second 66' wide screen was added in 1999. The Bay is also one of the few American Drive-ins which has an indoor viewing area (which can seat 60 people) and the only New York State Drive-in that has one. Between the two screens, the Bay accommodates up to 600 cars and provides audio with FM stereo radio broadcast. They are open seasonally, May - October, weekends only in spring and fall, 7 nights June thru Labor Day. They're lighting each of their two screens with double features. For the nostalgia minded, there are 100 traditional window speakers for Screen-1, besides radio broadcast (106.1FM & 600AM). Screen-2 audio is entirely by radio broadcast (92.3FM). The Bay is an exceptional Drive-in experience, with more than the usual amenities; one of the most extensive and imaginative snack bar menus, and an on premise indoor ATM for customer convenience. Dogs accepted, but credit cards are not (although there is an ATM machine on premises to convert plastic to cash). Admission: $6.50 per person for Adults (ages 12 and over); discounted $5.50 admission active military personnel (w/ID); $5.50 for Seniors 65+ and only $2 for Children (ages 7-11); Children aged 6 and under are admitted free.
