Previously operated by: E.M. Loew's Theaters Inc.
The Riverdale Drive-In opened in May 27, 1950 on Route 5/Riverdale Street. It was part of the E.M. Loew chain. It had a medium size theater marquee sign along Route 5 and a dirt road leading to a small cashier booth. The screen was very long and behind it was the dike that ran beside the Connecticut River.
It was closed in 1967, and demolished in 1986 for the building of the Riverdale Plaza Shops. Unlike other drive-ins whose screens were hid from the main road, one could watch the movie from Route 5 which it directly faced.
