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 the late-1970’s, 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.
