The Norway Drive-In opened on May 6, 1955. I recall this drive-in from the short time (two weeks) I filled in as a projectionist, the few times as a kid I was taken by my parents and the one or two times I took my girlfiend there.
It was your typical drive-in located in a wide-open field. The back of the screen was parallel with the road, there were no roads behind the drive-in and it was protected by a large stand of trees on the left side and the rear. To the right was a large farm. The projection booth was typical – not too large, but not overly cramped. Simplex projectors if I recall correctly. Bottom of each compartment had the requisite sanitary pad to absorb the oil leakage that develops over many years of wear (and non-replacement of seals). All cinder-block construction.
Typical tiled-wall concession stand serving pre-bagged burgers, hot dogs, fries, candy, soda, coffee and popcorn. It was bought out by Wal-Mart in the late-1980’s or early-1990’s. Now, there’s a traffic light to let people out on to Route 26.
