Revere Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Revere Drive-In on Squire Road was operating prior to 1955, when it was listed as being operated by Michael Redstone & Daytz Theatre Enterprises. I remember driving in my father’s car (1974) on Route 60 in Revere and you could see the movies from the road. A few year later, my grandma and I would pack up her 1963 Buick and head out to the flea market at 4:30 in the morning.

I have actually tracked down the elusive second Revere Drive-in. After some research, I have discovered that the Suffolk Downs Drive-In Theatre was at 1375 Bennington Rd, and is exactly where I thought it once was – it is now Belle Isle Marsh Reservation. It appears to have been opened for a period between 1950-1970, and possibly has an East Boston address rather than a Revere address, which is news to me, although the Suffolk Downs T station is also listed as East Boston, so it’s possible – they both straddle the town lines, I guess. But hey at least I know my mother-in-law was right now!:–)

565 Squire Rd, Revere, MA 02151

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

The site referenced is actually the second location of the Revere Drive-In. Originally located south of Beach St. where Super Stop & Shop is now located. You can see this clearly in the 1955 HistoricAerials.com view http://www.historicaerials.com/aerials.php?scale=1.2041373500713E-05&lat=42.43114318119&lon=-71.0208800669299&year=1955

That is incorrect – the aerial picture from 1955 clearly shows the only location,at the junction of routes 1,C-1 and 60.

If you go north up route 1 on the picture, you can see an areal shot of the Saugus Drive in.
