Movies, Motors & Memories Exhibit in the Pennsylvania Room

Drive-in theaters have always been popular in Pennsylvania. Once there were more than a dozen drive-ins in operation in Westmoreland County. Now there are only a few left.

Jennifer Sopko, a freelance writer concentrating on Westmoreland Pennsylvania history and culture, has assembled a wonderful exhibit of photographs, memorabilia and projection equipment that evoke memories of hot summer evenings, cool cars and classic flicks.

This free exhibit is on display in the Pennsylvania Room of the Ligonier Valley Library through July 7.
