The Hudson Valley Drive
Overlook and Hyde Park drive-in cinemas have been an important part of Hudson Valley for over 60 years. Hyde Park Drive-In was founded in 1949 when Sidney and Ida Cohen started to grow their smallholding. in Poughkeepsie in 1955, and the remainder is over.
One of the owner's sons is Barry Horowitz, who has worked with his spouse Carol at Hyde Park Drive-In for 51 years: and we' re the only drive-in cinema in the land that belongs to the national park service."
Family members and undergraduates from all over the countryside come to their meadows to watch the latest films and get some nostalgic memories. "Over the years we have received more and more foreigners," Horowitz said. It' about 7pm on a Saturday evening, half an hours before Sully is due to leave Hyde Park Drive-In.
There are also many domestic animals on the lawn, as both Hyde Park and Overlook are dog-friendly. If you love films or just want to be a sequel to this historical establishment, visit the Overlook Drive-In Theatre on Degarmo Road in Poughkeepsie over the next few weeks for some Halloween celebrations of the coming Halloween time.
