Movie Time At The Finger Lakes Drive-In


The Finger Lakes Drive-In opened for the season Friday night.   Movie fans had to use a newly opened entrance to the Aurelius drive-in, about 50 feet away from the previous one, due to an ongoing blockade by the Cayuga Nation.

The nation’s leadership council, which purchased the property west of the drive-in in January 2023, and put concrete blocks in its driveway. That, along with several of the theater’s parking spots and a third of its screen, are located on the neighboring property. The nation says a lease drive-in owner Paul Meyer used to access the property is “invalid and unenforceable.”

The drive-in has operated for 77-years.

You can watch ta double feature tonight and Sunday.  The drive-in is show “If” and “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.”
