The Sturbridge Drive-In was a sure sign of hope that our long winter might soon be over. Around the middle of March, the marquee would drop "Closed for Season" and post the first shows of the season for the last weekend of the month.

Besides the great Disney movies of the ‘50s, my clearest memory was the night my brother and I got lost coming back from the snackbar to the car. Suddenly, the movie was interrupted by the announcer asking my parents to rescue us at the stand.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

Here is a 1966 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

The drive-in was demolished sometime between 1966 and 1971, since there is no trace of it in the 1971 aerial photo imagery.
