The Hi-Way Drive-In Theatre is a little slice of heaven tucked away in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. Since the day it opened its ticket booth, the Hi-Way has been screening double features for its patrons every year in the spring, summer, and fall. Opened in 1951 by the Klein brothers at the start of the drive-in boom, Greene County’s Hi-Way Drive-In boasts a 75-foot wide main screen (plus three additional ones), parking for over 600 vehicles, and the original neon marquee, which evokes a classic feel. The Hi-Way is currently the second-largest drive-in in New York StateIn 1996 Roger and Sharon Babcock took over ownership of the drive-in and began to pour love, sweat, and years of their lives into the little theater. As the years progressed, they added more screens. Today, the Hi-Way is a four-screen drive-in!
Roger and Sharon always screen the newest Hollywood releases, and they always have something for everyone. In fact, one of the screens is always dedicated just for the kids; it screens animated and children’s movies all summer long. The Hi-Way has always been a great place to meet up with friends, enjoy the fresh air of the Catskills, and of course, enjoy the movies.
And, like all drive-in theaters born in the heyday of drive-ins, the Hi-Way has always screened its movies on 35mm film prints. To this day, if you were to pop into the projection booth to say hello to Roger, you’d still here the clickety-clack of the film as it speeds through the projectors.
