On August 21st, 1963, Kent Theatres proudly unveiled the Blanding Drive-In, a cinematic oasis that would forever change the landscape of entertainment. The inaugural film featured on this auspicious occasion was none other than MGM’s “Flipper”. The grand opening ad, immortalized in the photo section, captured the excitement and anticipation of moviegoers as they flocked to experience the magic of the silver screen under the open sky. The Blanding Drive-In became a cherished gathering place, where families, friends, and film enthusiasts created lasting memories. (Rewritten by AI).

Went to the Blanding many times as a youngster. Many fond memories. Even in the mid 70’s they were playing films like “The Blob” as second feature. I also remember alot of “Hot Car” pictures playing as they were very popular, “Gone in 60 seconds”, “Vanishing Point” “Dirty Mary , Crazy Larry”.
