Finger Lakes Drive-In creates new entrance after Cayuga Nation puts up blockade amid legal dispute

The Finger Lakes Drive-In is opening for the season this weekend, showing double features of “If” and “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.” However, the Cayuga Nation placed concrete blocks in the driveway, complicating the theater’s operations.

The Cayuga Nation, which owns the neighboring property, claims a lease used by owner Paul Meyer is invalid. The blockade issue is currently in Cayuga County Supreme Court.

Meyer has requested an injunction against the blockade, citing irreparable harm to his business. On Friday, a new entrance was created, just 50 feet away from the old one allowing customers to move freely to-and-from the theater.
