This one’s long gone, closed and demolished – a packaging company now sits on the site. However, if you look at the aerial on Google maps, it’s fairly obvious what it used to be – the footprint is still there.

August 27, 1950 was the launch date for the Hoosac Drive-In with “Mexican Hayride” and “South of St. Louis” on the big screen located on the Adams-North Adams town line. Opened with a capacity for 435 cars on ten ramps. A 36x40' screen was constructed by the original operator, the Boylston Drive-In Corporation circuit.

I used to work there as a projectionist in the 1970s. At that time it was owned by Al Coury, who also owned Coury’s Drive-In in North Adams.
