Now this is interesting: Although the street address of the single-screen Northfield Drive-In is firmly in New Hampshire, the property also bleeds into Massachusetts, making it the only drive-in theater to straddle two states (Vermont is also in the very near vicinity). Prominently featured in the 1999 historical tearjerker “The Cider House Rules,” the Northfield Drive-In may also be the only place in any state where you can see two movies and scarf a pound of French fries for under 15 bucks.
New England plays a storied role in the history of the drive-in theater, particularly Massachusetts, which was home to several of the very first drive-ins (the first was the Weymouth Drive-In, opened in 1936). By the late 1950s, the state boasted nearly 90 outdoor theater establishments according to DriveinMovie.com. Today, only four remain including the state-straddling Northfield, which opened in 1948.
