About Black River Drive-in

The Black River Drive-in is a single screen drive-in located in Watertown, New York. The most recent contribution to New York's Drive-in Renaissance (among the recently-built and formerly 'dark' Drive-ins that have been restored and reopened), the Black River Drive-in was originally built in 1950, and was first lit in August of that year as a solo screen with a capacity for just over 500 cars. It remained lit, seasonally, for more than three decades, through a series of owners and operators, and then went dark in the 1980's as America's passion for Drive-ins cooled. Black River remained dark for the next twenty years. After acquiring the property, and the years of clearing the site and cutting red tape that followed, a fabulous resurrection was performed here, and the Black River Drive-in was finally reopened on August 18th, 2006. Situated in a picturesque park-like setting, the revived picture show offers al fresco cinema with double features, seasonally, mid-April thru September. Movie audio is provided with a local radio broadcast (87.9 FM) in stereo. Admission: $8 for Adults (ages 12&up); $3 for Children (7-11); Kids aged 6&under admitted free and $6 for active military members. Dogs are permitted, providing they will remain leashed and manageable when not in your car (there is also a designated area available for walking them, along the tree line). The Black River Drive-in also accepts credit cards at both the box office and concession stand.
