Oxford Twin Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Capacity for approximately 1,300 cars. Closed prior to 1992, when Walmart took the property and constructed their store. This theatre had two screens, one on the Oxford side, the other on the Auburn side.

An old photograph taken in 1992 shows the sign to read "Worcester Screen/Oxford Screen".
The grounds, at one time, had a "Kiddyland" in addition to the free children’s playground on the lot. Kiddyland was open all day, charging 15 – 20 cents per ride on elaborate attractions. At dusk, Kiddyland would close while the drive-in opened. The kids could then play on the free playground.

Any other information and corrections appreciated, lots of great memories of that drive-in.

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

There are some pictures of the Oxford Twin on its gallery page at Drive-ins.com: http://www.drive-ins.com/pictures/matoxfo001.jpg The theater issued “fog passes” if the dense mist made viewing the show difficult.
