We just had another successful fourth season as a community owned and volunteer operated season. We are very grateful for all the help from some of Southington's great civic groups.
The Southington Drive-In is unique not only because it is one of only three remaining outdoor venues in the state, but also because it has been purchased by the town of Southington. A little history on our town treasure: the drive-in first opened in 1954 and operated for nearly half a century before closing in 2002. In 2004 Southington residents voted to purchase the property to expand nearby Recreation Park and enjoy continued outdoor activities at the nostalgic site.
In early 2010 a group of local volunteers gathered under the auspices of the “Southington Drive-In Committee” to begin the process of reopening the drive-in. Thank you to all of our supporters for an unbelievably successful 3 seasons of Movie at the Drive-In. We are proud to say that over our first 4 seasons we have been able to distribute over $50,000 to 15 local non-profit Southington civic organizations.
