News About This Theater
- Apr 5, 2010 — Southington Drive-In may return
Your typical drive-in of the 1950’s, this actually opened May 18, 1955 with George Montgomery in “Seminole Uprising” & Glenn Ford in “Blackboard Jungle”. Featured in-car heaters that made the 800-scar capacity drive-in loads of fun in the winter. The Southington Drive-In had a wonderful neon/flashing light roadside sign which, unfortunately, was downsized to about half its original design sometime in the late-1970’s. Later, a second screen was added, which wasn’t such a bad thing and actually made for better use of the property.
The theatre went dark in 2002, one of the last remaining drive-ins in CT. It was reopened on June 26, 2010, as a single screen.
