Drive-In Theatres in New England

My brother and sister in law recently took their two boys to the drive-in movies. The younger one couldnít understand how they were going to see a movie from the car.

I think itís a shame that there arenít as many drive-in theaters left. When we were kids, weíd pile into the car and drive to the nearest drive-in. Mom and dad had five kids at the time, and at one-price-per-car, it was a bargain! As hard-working young farmers, it was the only way to take your family to the movies.

Today, that drive-in is no longer there. Thankfully, there are some in operation throughout New England. Hereís a list of those still in operation. If you know of any Iíve missed, please email me and Iíll add it to our list. Be aware that many drive-ins now seem to charge per person instead of per vehicle.
