This was a fun place to see double bills in the 70’s. I recall seeing SUSPIRIA plus THE OMEN II, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME plus THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, HALLOWEEN plus CARRIE. I think the first film I saw there as a child was THE LOVE BUG but I may have slept through it…

I recall seeing a newspaper advertisement as late as 1985, but I was living out of state by then. They were showing a triple bill of HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and SUPERSTITION.

Horror movies at the Lonsdale were much scarier. Who knew what would crawl out of the Blackstone River, slit you open and then hide in the narrow aisles of Ann & Hope?

Our band called THE DURELLS, performed on top of the concession stand during intermission. the dj was a man named Don Ratray for either wpaw or wxtr the station was across the street from the drive in. this was around 1960 0r 1961 and our manager at the time was Roger Lamontange. I was wondering if anyone remembers this and possibly has either any pictures or audio of this.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you, Ernie Lizotte

I spent many a summer weekend at this drive in…My parents would think I was asleep after the Showing of KONGA and my eyes were peeled watching Sherri Caffaro in the Ginger movies…GOD I miss this place!

My mother worked here in the late 1960’s. My dad and I used to get in free all the time and see the current movies.
