Merrimack Park Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The drive-in was built by E.M Loew’s Theatres in Methuen on Lowell Street along the river on the west side of Route 93. It operated years later as a family run business well into the 1980’s. The Kevlin Corporation at 596 Lowell Street occupies the site today.

The Merrimack Park closed around 1985. I worked there as a projectionist filling in on occasion in 1982 and 83.

That’s interesting Ron. The earliset entry I found in the business directories was for 1956. It must’ve been constructed years before that then. Thanks

You’re right Chuck, I missed that. I posted the link and embedded the thumbnial. Didn’t see the comment policy till you just mentioned it.
Sorry, Thanks for pointing it out.
