Projecting Success: Drive-In Owner is the Reel Deal

Some people work a second job and call it moonlighting. John Nagelschmidt ’66 means it literally.

Since 1961 — summers as a SUNY Oswego student, and on the side throughout a 30-year career as a teacher — Nagelschmidt has been screening stars while working under the stars at the Midway Drive-In. In 1987, he bought the outdoor theatre, halfway between Oswego and Fulton, on Route 48 in Minetto. This year marks his 50th anniversary at Midway.
