Drive - Ins
A staple of 1950’s entertainment still
exists today in Blackstone River Valley, with two active motion
picture drive ins.
The Mendon Twin Drive-in was built in 1953 and opened on June 14, 1954.
The drive-in has been in operation for 46 years. The current owners, Susan
Swanson and Kathy Gorman have operated the drive-in since 1987. Sue and Kathy
added a second screen in 1998, increasing the total capacity of the drive-in to
800 cars. Our projection booth is equipped with the latest in sound and picture
technology, ensuring our customers the most pleasant movie experience. The sound
is broadcasted over AM/FM stereo, either from your car radio or any portable
stereo you wish to bring. Feel free to bring soft Frisbees, balls, etc
Since 1951 the Rustic Tri-View Drive In
has been screening movies to carloads of filmgoers. Located on Route 146 (Eddie
Dowling Highway) in North Smithfield, RI, is open seasonally from
April-September and has 550 parking spaces, concessions and rest room
facilities. In 1988, two more
screens were added and the name was changed to the Rustic Tri-View Drive-In.
It is listed as the last open drive-in in Rhode Island.
