Memorial Day weekend is here and the weather is looking pretty good for the unofficial start of summer. What better way to enjoy it than by packing up the family in the car and heading to the drive-in theater?
The days when just about every town had its own drive-in theater are long gone, and we lost two more this year. Saco Drive-In is temporarily closed as it's in the process of moving to Aquaboggan Water Park and Bangor Drive-In sadly announced in April that it would be closing indefinitely. But between Maine and New Hampshire, there are still six drive-in theaters open this season.
Since it's Memorial Day Weekend, there are some blockbuster movies out in theaters, and many of Maine and New Hampshire's drive-in theaters will be showing them.
Here's what's playing at each drive-in theater this weekend along with showtimes.
Pride's Corner - 651 Bridgton Rod / Route 302, Westbrook, ME
Pride's Corner has a triple feature for the Memorial Day weekend, starting at 8:30 with Top Gun: Maverick which is getting good reviews.
That's followed by Uncharted with Ton Holland and Mark Wahlberg at 10:55.
And if you're still awake, at 1 a.m. it's the classic horror movie from 1984, Friday the 13th Part IV.
