Some of you may not be old enough to remember, but a Drive-In is an outdoor place to see a movie from the comfort of your car, with a large screen, a projection booth and a concession stand.  It truly is a nostalgic piece of history and a fantastic way to spend a weekend night with the family!  Cattaraugus County is lucky enough to host two such facilities, both offering 2 screens of current movies.  Bring the family or a date to see a movie under the stars.

STROLEAN

Organized by the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce

301 N. Union St. Olean, NY | 716-372-4433 | www.oleanny.com 


Olean, Cattaraugus County’s largest city, has received major improvements within the last couple of years to create a walkable downtown. This major overhaul brought five roundabouts and center medians to North Union Street, along with major water and sewer infrastructure upgrades. This new “Walkable Olean” has already proven itself to be capable of fostering an economic and cultural resurgence.  New, unique, and trendy restaurants are now complimenting the tried and true favorites.  Union Whiskey, Union Tea, Grand Slam Grill, Tandoor Taste of India, Ravyn and Robyn, and Rafi’s Platter are all welcome additions to our classics like Angee’s, Beef 'n' Barrel, 3rd Base, and Brother's Bistro.  Christie's Boutique features local artwork, gift baskets full of local goodies, and festive decor both small and large.  Four Mile Brewing Company, opened in May of 2015, brought the craft beer revolution to Olean, not to mention some pretty tasty brews.  Join in the next StrOlean event, sponsored by the Greater Area Chamber of Commerce. This festival is a walkable event throughout North Union Street with scavenger hunts, live music, sports tournaments, beer tasting, pop-up vendors, and community movies.

Both places hold events throughout the year, as well as ghost hunts and tours.
