Google street view from November of 2016 shows the screen at the back of the lot is still standing.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

I was biking by on my way out to Danielson from Killingly and you couldn’t miss this. However, the pics that Roger Katz has on CinemaTour are drastically different than what I saw, some 5 years later. There are now no dilapidated buildings and trees have been cut down that were encroaching on the view of the screen.

Lots of grass and growth are everywhere and there are just scattered slabs of concrete with poles attached. The screen is big and fully intact and there are some trucks in the back left (abutting the trucking facility next door). The driveway slants down on a natural slant to the main area, maybe a drop of 10-20 feet.

This is on Route 12 in Danielson. Proper name is the Danielson-Putnam Twin Drive-In. The Lord chain also owned some other theatres in the area including the Midtown and Yale theatres in Norwich.
