Two More Drive-Ins Open for the Season That Are Worth the Trip
These two drive-in movie theatres, one in CT and one in NY, are a bit of a drive but worth it.
This past April I wrote an article titled, 'The Current Status of Drive-In Movie Theatres in CT and NY.' The good news is, in addition to the Pleasant Valley Drive-In in Barkhamsted opening for the season, we now have two new additions for the Spring and Summer of 2020.
One of my all-time favorite drive-in movie theatres, which I've written about many times, is located in Amenia, NY. With their battle cry of "Bringing our sanity back," Four Brothers Drive-In Theatre opened up on May 15 and will be showing movies seven nights a week.
All tickets MUST be purchased online from their website, www.playeatdrink.com, and then presented at the box office when you arrive. 'Four Brothers' is limiting the number of vehicles, which is why reservations are essential. Four at 4957 Rt. 22 in Amenia, NY and is approximately 55 minutes from Danbury. Their phone number is 845-373-8178.
Unfortunately, the Southington Drive-In is not up and running yet but will try for an August opening. One more CT drive-in owned by the same family since 1954 has recently opened for business. You could call the legendary Mansfield Drive-In Theatre & Marketplace the mac-daddy of all drive-ins. Their 40 acre complex with three screens is at 228 Stafford Rd. in Mansfield Center, CT. If you reside in the greater Danbury area, the Mansfield Drive-In is a bit of a drive at 90 minutes but definitely worth the ride.
