Starlight Drive-In Theatre

1985 North Main Street Ext.
Butler, PA 16001


Starlight Drive-In (formerly Pioneer Drive-In), now under new ownership, has been providing affordable family entertainment since 1958.  Despite the decline in drive-ins in Western Pennsylvania and nationwide, new owners, John and Beth, see a future for the Starlight Drive-In. a place where they would go to unwind on a Friday night after a hectic work week.  Drive-in theaters aren’t resting on nostalgia. The mid-century icons are finding new audiences and installing HD-quality digital projectors, luring audiences to an evening of relaxation and family entertainment.

Drive-ins provide a romantic and nostalgic alternative under the stars; have the largest movie screens; snack bar menus and affordable entertainment for the entire family.  Families can enjoy double feature first run movies at a fraction of the cost of indoor movie complexes.

With concession stand upgrades under way, the couple plans a video/pinball arcade, installation of a mini golf course for spring of 2016, expansion of the snack bar menu and special feature nights and events.  Stop back often to see what’s new.

So gather your family friends and experience a fun filled evening at the Starlight Drive-In Theater.  Drive-In theaters are special places with a unique atmosphere that can’t be found in an indoor theatre.  Stop by and discover the magic of movies under the stars.
