During its peak in the 1950’s, nearly 90 Drive-in movies operated throughout Massachusetts. While only 4 remain permanently operational, drive in movies are making a comeback due to the “new normal” of social distancing. Many towns and businesses are opening pop-up locations to bring the magic of the Drive-in to a new generation of fans.
