Mentioned in the NYTimes CT Section about the last drive-ins in Connecticut.

I lived in Franklin, New Jersey for over a year after Katrina. I used to go to this drive in often.

Have they opened for the season and converted to digital?

The Warwick Drive in Concerted to digital at a cost of $390,000.00 in Late Oct 2013. The Drive in IS scheduled to OPEN for the season on Friday March 21st. They will blow/plow away as much of the remaining snow as possible.

Great sounds like it will be around for a while. Sad about the Fair Oaks

I have been going to the Fair Oaks Drive In since 1997. The cost of going digital was too much for the former operator and owner. Plus after 23 years of running the DI, he was getting ready to move on. It was a very busy with many cars squeezing in on a nice spring summer night.

I hope that some other operator takes over and opens for the season in April or May of this year. The main screen at the Fair Oaks. Is the biggest in all of NYS

The Warwick’s web site has an excellent, updated history on its About Us page. Its early details match up with the 1950s Theatre Catalogs. The second screen went up in 1982, and the third must have been just before 1995.
