Dutchess County’s Four Brothers Pizza Inn has ventured into the world of entertainment, opening the Amenia Drive-in Theatre to provide good food and family entertainment in one place. Four Brothers is the country’s only restaurant to operate a drive-in theater next door, allowing for the full experience of dinner and a movie in an outdoor setting.  

The scene includes radios for the dining tables, space for lawn chairs and such pet-friendly features as dog treats at the ticket booth, walking paths around the property and a doggie park area. In addition to the complete Four Brothers restaurant menu, the Amenia Drive-in has its own snack bar, offering freshly made popcorn with real butter. Coming soon are custom made pizzas, delivered directly moviegoers’ cars.            

The area also features a terrace, garden and well-kept grounds to stroll. Admission is $7 a person, and children under 10 are admitted for free when accompanied by an adult. To see the latest movie schedule, visit AmeniaDriveIn.com/schedule. The films will continue through the winter as weather permits, and planners intend to organize them around such themes as date night, family night and comedy night.  

The Amenia Drive-in Theatre is located at 4957 Rte. 22 in Amenia, NY, adjacent to the Four Brothers Pizza Inn at the intersection of routes 22 & 44. For more information, call 845.373.8178 or visit AmeniaDriveIn.com.
