Yes, its entrance gate was on Gallivan Blvd, not Morrissey Blvd; the latter intersected with Gallivan Blvd just to the east of the Drive-In’s location.

The screen could be viewed from the adjacent Southeast Expressway. Unfortunately, one disadvantage of its location was having an unfragrant dump, which was sometimes burning, next door.

The beautiful signage for this theater was colorfully done in neon. It was located next to the interstate highway at the Quincy exit.

Here’s the official web page for Pope John Paul II Park, which opened in June 2001. The park occupies the sites of both the Drive-In and an adjoining former landfill.

The fictional “Pen Park” in Dennis Lehane’s book Mystic River was based partially on this site.
