Almost positive that I saw Corvette Summer at this drive in with the second feature being Logan’s Run in 1978. My mother rented a cottage nearby during that summer. We both lived and still live in Rochester, NY. I have vague but precious memories of that summer.

Correction: This is now J & S Car Wash (the entrance) and J & S Oil gas station (the exit). A boat dealership sits in the back of what used to be the drive in. A more accurate address for this theater is 867 Western Ave. Manchester ME 04351. This points directly to the entrance.

Please update.

E.M. Loew’s Augusta Drive-In Theatre launched in 1950. Its last listings are in 1980 likely indicating closure at the end of a 30-year lease (though not a guarantee).

It certainly looks like the old projection booth/concession stand is still standing.
