The Boro Drive-In was located just over the line in North Attleborough, MA. Watch my video that was shot in 1991. You can see the sign just under the Grossman’s sign.

In Boxoffice magazine, July 2, 1949, the Manley Popcorn Company saluted the opening of the new Boro Drive-In in their ad:

The theatre must have opened in the summer of 1949.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

My grandfather OWNED the Boro Drive-in. My very first job was selling tickets and working in the concession stand for my grandpa.

I would love any copies of photos or memorabilia from the Boro Drive-in. He also owned the Quonset Drive-in too.
