Owner of Pizze Fritte setting up drive-in movies at New York State Fairgrounds

A drive-in movie theater is being set up at the New York State Fairgrounds’ Orange Lot, Villa Pizze Fritte owner Grazi Zazzara Sr. confirmed Wednesday night.

Zazzara said the idea had been in the works for about a month, but was approved last week. It’s unclear when the drive-in will start showing movies because forecasts call for rain on Friday and Saturday, Zazzara said.

“It seems to be very popular right now,” Zazzara said of drive-in movies.

Last week, Arlington Acres, which typically hosts weddings and other events in Fabius, showed The Goonies at a pop-up drive-in movie.

Zazzara’s drive-in will likely be able to fit 300 cars with social distancing. He said he’s hoping to allow people to sit in lawn chairs in front of their cars.

In addition to using an FM transmitter, the theater will feature exterior speakers.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Zazzara’s drive-thru version of Villa Pizze Fritte has been a hit.

In April, the vendor opened in DeWitt, causing traffic backups because it was so popular. It then moved to the Orange Lot, near the New York State Fairgrounds.

Villa Pizze Fritte has held an event for each of the last five weekends. Last week, it hosted a State Fair Food Fest at the Orange Lot. The vendor was joined by several others at the event.
