Seekonk Twin Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in July 1958, the Seekonk Family Drive-In was located on Route 6 in Seekonk. Traveling east from the Rhode Island border, it was on your right, in an area now populated by shopping outlets and strip malls.

Here is an ad for the Seekonk Art Drive-In circa 1963.

And another during that Seekonk “Art” Drive-In period: Bell'Antonio & The Law.

I recall the Seekonk as one of the first drive-ins in the area to feature “dollar a carload” admission. It also was considered one of the more “teenager-friendly” drive-ins in the East Providence/Seekonk area. I don’t really know why. Living across the line in Riverside, RI, we used to triple-date (station wagon) at the Seekonk abt 1959-60 for the price break, regardless of the films being featured.

I managed the Seekonk Twin in the late 70’s to early 80’s. It was a fantastic time and I have a lot of great memories of both the Seekonk Twin and Bay State Drive Ins. I recall one summer we had church services on Sunday mornings. The maintenance staff had to arrive extra early to pick up the trash from the “Konk” screen. I also had to be there to set up the sound. We ran microphone wires from the projection booth out across the roof and the reverend had to climb our flimsy aluminum ladder to preach from the rooftop.

This theatre was owned in later years by Cinema Centers Corporation (CCC). CCC sold out to Hoyts around 1981/82.

165 U.S. 6, Seekonk, MA 02771

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is currently occupied by a shopping plaza.

Here is a 1963 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of HistoricAerials.com.

After 40 years I have reconnected with my high school sweet heart. We were discussing movies one night. I seem to recall going with her to the “Twin” back around 1970/71, to see “Joe” and “Night of The Living Dead.” I want to say the were both playing the same night. Does anyone recall this and am I correct. I also seem to recall seeing “Willard” there at some point. I miss the place. As high schoolers we had some fun times there………….jeff, Greene, RI
