The Sunset Drive-In Theater made its debut on June 10, 1948. The outdoor movie theater was located one mile east of Waterford on State Route 97.
The first movie shown at Sunset was the Gary Cooper feature 'The Westerner.'
Sunset touted itself as Erie County, PA's newest drive-in, with the finest equipment including in-car speakers with individual volume selection. The theater had two shows nightly, rain or clear.
