My family lived in the Hyattsville area from about 1963 to 1965, when I was a small child, and I remember that the Queens Chapel Drive-In had one of the most EXCELLENT playgrounds down in front of the screen. I remember seeing “Goldfinger” there!

This drive-in was pedestrian friendly, with benches near the concession stand. When I was a kid, I used to take the bus here to catch films like The Silencers & Sons Of Katie Elder.

I thought it was much newer but i am 95% sure i saw “WILLARD” and “WHO SLEW AUNTIE RUE” there in the early 70’s. Thanks Jack for getting me here. Sure thought it was built later than 1955.
