Between 1945 and 1950, I lived in East Hubbardton, south of Monument Hill. During that time, I frequently visited the Fort Warren drive in, with farm friends just down the road.

First, the address 129 VT-4A, Castleton, VT will more accurately map the location of the drive-in. You can still barely make out some of the ramps.

Second, there’s something not right or complete about the information to when the theater operated. According to a 2003 aerial overhead photograph, the drive-in already gone by that point in time having last been present in a 1994 aerial photo.

Based on that, either the drive-in was moved to another location or it did not last into the 21st century.

The highest-numbered card among the MGM Theatre Reports is the card for this drive-in in Castleton VT. It’s Card # 608. It’s in the Theatre Historical Society on-line archive under “New England Special Collection”. And it’s not in numerical order: it’s listed between cards 573 and 574. There’s not much activity with these cards after 1950-51 or so, which indicates the Ft. Warren must have opened around then. Unfortunately, no one filled the card out; there is only a photo of a twin-gated entrance. There is a movie poster at left and, if you can read it, you can date the photo from the title.
