SHANKWEILER'S DRIVE-IN Drive-In, Orefield, PA

Shankweiler’s Drive-In opened in Orefield, PA on April 15, 1934. After the first drive in opened in 1933 in Camden New Jersey closes this becomes the longest lived drive in still in operation. The current owner Paul Geissinger converted the projectors to digital in 2012. 35 MM print film is being phased out and many drive-ins can't afford to pay for conversion.
