Mercer County drive-in to host grand reopening

Local News

The event will feature live music, food trucks, and vendors

TRANSFER, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – A Mercer County drive-in theatre is making a comeback after years of being closed.

The Reynold’s Drive-in Theatre on Hermitage Road has been closed since 2014, but Saturday, it will be reopening and hosting a live concert event.

The event will feature a variety of food and beverage trucks, live music and different vendors.

Owners Peggy and Stephanie Fiedler, who just recently bought the drive-in, have done some renovations since acquiring the property, which includes a new screen, stage and a fresh look for the cafe.

“No one was going to take care of this place, so we decided to do that,” Fiedler said.

Local band, Juvenile Characteristics, will be playing at the drive-in, but they were also major players in planning the event and renovating the property.

As local members of the community growing up, they said it feels really special to not only be the first band playing at the beloved drive-in but the first act ever.

The reopening will officially begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free, though donations are requested.

Cars must maintain seven feet between each other, and social distancing flyers will be distributed at the gate.

More events are being scheduled, including a Father’s Day flea market this Sunday.

The drive-in is located at 3706 N. Hermitage Rd.
