Located in North Wilbraham on Boston Road, just over the line from Springfield. The Parkway Drive-In was opened in 1948 with Walt Disney’s “Song of the South” & Johnny Weissmuller in “Tarzan and the Huntress”. By 1955 it was operated by M.R. Zio & Daytz Theatre Enterprises. A motel located next to it had sound piped in from the drive-in. Customers could see the large screen from the comfort of their rooms. The motel advertised “free in-room movies.” This was in the days before cable.
A religious denomination held drive-in services on Sunday mornings. It was closed in 1987 and demolished in 1988. A Home Depot stands on the site of the drive-in today.
