Manchester Drive-In

Opened by Bernard Menschell on August 5, 1953, the Manchester Drive-In was one of many drive-in theaters to pop up in Connecticut during this time period. Located at “The Notch” in Bolton/Manchester, it had space for 515 cars, and would show nightly double-features. Over the years, the excitement and the wonder of drive-in movie theaters began to wane, and the Manchester Drive-In was abandoned in 1984.
