The Reading Drive-in Theatre

 The Reading Drive-In Theatre opened on August 1, 1949. It was located on the 5th Street Hi-way (old Rt. 222) several miles north of Reading in Temple, Pa.  It had a capacity for 744 cars. The theatre closed in 1984. A Sam’s Club store now operates in the same location.



Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
