Alton Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in Southeast New Hampshire in Alton. The Alton Drive-In was a simple drive-in for the local residents of that part of the state and opened in 1950, operated by George Garrett. It did park 250 cars and was later owned by Daytz Theatres, a theatre chain that had a few screens in New Hampshire.

The location of this drive-in was just south of School St. on Main St. (Hwy 11).

If you look closely about a half block, you can see the entrance, some ramps and some of the screen foundation.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Alton Drive-In; it’s Card # 606. But no one filled it out so there is no info. There is an undated photo which shows a wide driveway and a screen in the far distance. From the number on the card and the appearance of the card, I estimate that it dates from about 1950-51.
