The POST DRIVE-IN was THE REAL DEAL for horror-film double-features 1960s New Haven area. It was “Be There or Be Square”: they played all the iconic double-features: “Horrible Dr. Hichcock”/“Awful Dr.Orloff”, “Hercules In The Haunted World”/“Castle Of Blood”, etc. etc. The POST holds the distinction of being the LAST obscenity bust New Haven area—-for BLOOD FEAST (1963). Covered in the New Haven Register. I knew the son of the owner and he said the State Police seized the print of the film and it was not returned. The other well-known obscenity bust back then was in Providence, R.I. for CIRCLE OF LOVE (‘64)—-the judge found it “not obscene”, covered in weekly Variety and Boxoffice. Drive-In days, 1960s.

Was a K-Mart. It’s now a Home Depot and an Auto Zone.

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