I lived just over the border in N Smithfield, RI, and once I got my license, went quite often. This was from the early to late 80s. They still had the original car mount speakers. We were fortunate to have so many operational drive-ins at such a late date. Bellingham, Milford (now Mendon), Lonsdale, and Rustic (x-rated at the time), were all within a half hour drive. The Rustic and Mendon are still open to this day!

The self storage company has changed the name of the facility from Drive-In Storage to CubeSmart Self Storage.

Motion Picture Exhibitor, Sept. 7, 1955: “The first reports of the storm and flood damage to drive-ins in southern New England fortunately were not as serious as anticipated. The Quaker Drive-In, Uxbridge, Mass., reported out of commission for at least a year, opened again on Sept. 2. Some of the equipment was salvaged and after the mud had dried out it was advisable to reopen.”

Motion Picture Exhibitor, Sept. 14, 1955: “The aftermath of the worst flood In the history of New England finds theatres in Massachusetts not as badly damaged as first reported … The Quaker Drive-In, Uxbridge, owned by Ned Eisner and Bob Atamian, required $20,000 to be put back in order. It reopened for the Labor Day weekend.”

As a child, I lived quite close to this drive-in but don’t recall ever attending a screening there. We did, however, go to the near-by Bellingham Drive-In.
