The Natick Drive-In was a great place for the family to go. In addition to the movie screen, there was a neat little playground there with miniature trains, boat rides, swings, and more for the kiddies. It opened June 29, 1950 with Maureen O'Hara in “Commanche Territory”.
I was extremely young back in the late-1960’s and early-1970’s when my parents would occasionally take me and my three siblings to shows here. I looked forward to playing in the park since I’d usually end up asleep on the rear package tray of the family car by the time the features were ready to begin. The only movie I seem to recall seeing there was “Lighthouse at the Edge of the World” (1971). I was only five at the time, and recall being terrified for days after.
I had my first tastes of Dr. Pepper (relatively rare in New England at the time) and Lotta Lemon there. The concession stand was a far cut above what most theatre snack bars would offer.
