Overlook Drive-In Theatre

126 Degarmo Road
Poughkeepsie, NY 12603

845-452-3445

In 1949, independent theatre owners, Sidney and Ida Cohen expanded their family owned and operated business by opening the Hyde Park Drive-In Theatre. Then, in 1955, they added the Overlook Drive-In Theatre. At the present time, both of these drive-ins continue to be family owned and operated.

Less than a two-hour drive from Manhattan, this is the closest drive-in to Manhattan and the NYC metro area. Situated on 12 acres, with the LARGEST screen in the tri-state area (as tall as a 6-story building) and a capacity for parking 750 cars, Overlook Drive-In provides you with a wonderful drive-in experience as it was during the heyday of America’s love affair with Cinema al fresco – when the vast grass field beneath the huge screen was dotted with hundreds of people outside of their cars, on blankets and lawn chairs on a hot summer night.

Although this location has a large capacity, please plan on arriving early during peak season in order to secure your spot!
