Opened in 1950 with a capacity of 750 cars, the drive-in showed films until 1970 when it was shut down until 1979. It closed for good in 1982. The original marquee is used as a club sign while the projection/concession area became a boys' club.
Although generally called the Ponta Drive-In, its full name was “Ponta del Gada” after the capital of the Azores. There are many Portuguese and Azoreans in this area, especially in nearby Fall River, Massachusetts, which borders on North Tiverton. The Ponta may have been the only movie theatre ever in Tiverton, Rhode Island.
