mrchet commented about Brunswick Rt. 1 Drive-In on Mar 1, 2011 at 12:02 am

That was a very laid back-country type of drive in. The buildings were made to look kind of like log cabins if I remember correctly. It felt like you were out in the woods. If you blinked you would drive right by it. The locals knew the “back” way in in order to beat the traffic on rt. 1. I remember cars backine up on rt. 1 on big openings. Sadly missed…..Gary

Hi Guys. I remember riding that train. I remember the loop up by rt. 18 but I can’t remember how far back it went. I don’t think it made it all the way to tice’s lane. I’ve often wondered what ever happen it. The oldest I would have been was 10 or 12 I think. So it ran until at least 66 but more like 1970 or so. It sat in that little shed for the whole time that the drive in was open I guess. Thanks for the memory. Those tall thin steel cans of “yoohoo” and paper drinking straws. thanks again…..Gary
