This drive-in had the grandest neon “stars” I’d ever seen (haven’t been to Vegas yet.) I remember my last time there as a teenager, climbing up over the rear chain-link fence on boards we place there once the first feature started… Later the drive-in sold to become the site of the Keene Sentinel printing plant, which unlike the Union Leader and Concord Monitor’s, was never built ( I remember this as a Sentinel employee as I took the plans out to the dumpster for disposal.) Now home to pine trees and ground nesting birds…

Approx. address for this drive-in was 26 Optical Avenue. Though overgrown, you can still make out the ramps.

The Shakour family still owns and operates the Northfield (MA) Drive-In according to their website.

Here’s a short video discussing the history of the Keene Drive-In. Also shows a picture of the box office of the Pine Island Drive-In in Manchester, NH.
