The Aug. 27, 1941 issue of The Exhibitor reported that Nelson Jacobs “has just completed the new Drive-In for Dartmouth Drive-In Theatres, Inc., in Dartmouth. This up-to-the-minute autery parks 750 cars, and is operated by William Purcell. Opening was to be on Aug. 22. A unique layout of the new Drive-In is the fan-design, with aisles spreading out in a cone, utilizing the architecture of the surrounding land.”

The Sept. 10, 1941 issue mentioned “New Drive-In Theatre operated by the Dartmouth Drive-In Theatre, Inc., has especially developed sound equipment installed by RCA Photophone.”

The Theatre Historical Society on-line archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Dartmouth Auto Theatre; it’s Card # 603. But no one filled the report out so there is no information, only an undated photo. Most of the undated photos in these reports were taken between 1945 and 1950.
