I took the picture of the screen in 1979, just after the Drive In closed,and was about to be torn down. The other photo I took and uploaded, was the view of the front. Taken the same day, you can see my 1966 Ford Mustang convertible parked in front.

Great drive-in, as a kid after supper and in pj’s we would head to the Natick with our parents, the smell of fresh bread from Wonder was always in the air! don’t remember ever being awake by the end of the movie? Years later I apprenticed in the booth(with my learners permit!) getting my ‘mileage'to take the state projectionist exam.

There are several pictures of this rather elegant drive-in on its gallery page at Drive-ins.com: http://www.drive-ins.com/gallery/matnati

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is currently occupied by a shopping center.

Back in the winter of 1969, as a high school senior, I recall seeing a double feature there: ‘Bullitt" and
“The Reivers”, both of which starred Steve McQueen. Cool Drive-in that was.

Spent many nights at the Natick Drive-In as a youngster in the 70’s. I remember seeing The Sting, Exorcist II and many other films on the big screen at Speen Street.
