Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 8, 2013 at 7:01 pm

So we have two drive-ins on CT with the same address.

The Brunswick and Bowdoin are both listed at 15 Tibbett’s Drive.

So is the Bowdoin Drive-In the correct address: 15 Tibbett’s Drive, East Brunswick?

The Brunswick Drive-In unknown at this time?

Drive-In 54 commented about International Airport Drive-In on Oct 7, 2013 at 10:47 am

It was listed in 1956 Yearbook of Motion Pictures. But that could be wrong also.

Drive-In 54 commented about Whitesburg Drive-In on Oct 6, 2013 at 6:10 pm

Little bit of history from Craig E. Parsons.

The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater, Huntsville’s first drive-in, was opened June 16, 1949. This theater is located one-half mile south of Huntsville on Whitesburg Drive and is owned and operated by Acme Investments, Incorporated, whose stockholders are Walton Fleming, president; Martha Fleming, vice-president; and Charles A. Crute, secretary-treasurer. In keeping with company policy, the latest type of equipment is maintained. The screen size was increased in 1954 to 100 x 40 feet to accommodate both wide-screen and Cinemascope attractions. Just prior to that time, playground equipment was installed in front of the screen and is available free of charge to patrons. The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater has a modern, fully-equipped Snack Bar. Mr. Robert Ross, who manages the Theater, is also manager of the Snack Bar. The screen burned down some time during May of 1980. All of the playground equipment was now gone and the lot had been bulldozed over.

I think this is it. It is on TWP 36 across from the cemetery. Looks like it was a pretty good size. 400 car maybe.

This is the only movie ad I could find from the Booker Park Drive-In. I guess it was a “colored” theatre only. I checked the address and could not find any remains in a 1962 aerial. It must not have been open very long.

Uploaded new pictures and movie ads. I would like to thank somebody for the pictures of the Starlite. They were on another Fort Myers theatre page.

Drive-In 54 commented about Temple Drive-In on Sep 26, 2013 at 8:21 am

Here is what I have:

Open in 1955 K&K and Temple Drive-Ins.

Open In 1963-1970 Meridian Drive-In. The only one listed in the town.

My thinking is that the K&K or Temple got renamed to the Meridian.

That is all I got.

In my listings the K & K Drive-In and the Temple Drive-In were separate theatres.

I wonder why they did not move the other screen tower to front of the parking ramps were the original was located at one time.

Drive-In 54 commented about Plainview Drive-In on Sep 23, 2013 at 5:37 pm

This drive-in was reconfigured after 1959 because of the rerouting of HWY 7. Look at it in 1969.

Address is: 5 Cemetery Road Canaan, CT 06018

I just uploaded new pictures and an overview for the Fort Myers/ Northside Drive-In. I do believe that Fort Myers and City Drive-Ins where operated by the same people for a while before the City Drive-In closed in 1970. I have a picture of a movie bill with both theatres on it.

I’m surprise they have not twined the Cherry Bowl yet. It looks like there is room for screen tower in back.

Chuck are you sure that is the correct address? I’m not finding it on any aerials or TOPO maps for that location. If it parked 600 cars it was big. I did find the one intersection of US 80 and SR 14 in the V of the intersection.
