With only three drive in theaters in CT, Mansfield Drive In was my first outdoor movie experience. With three large screens and each showing two movies each night, there's a lot to choose from. Located at 228 Stafford Road in Mansfield Center, CT, the field is easy to find coming from any direction. According to Drive In Movie's website where you can research drive in's near you by state:
The Drive-in boom here in the Nutmeg State peaked a decade later than in most of America's Drive-in states.
Mansfield shows movies currently in theaters, a fun way to see what's out now, while supporting local business. Mansfield also offers a full service snack bar with everything from fried dough, chicken tenders, popcorn, to even nachos.
This drive in sounds like a trivial experience, but I'd highly suggest it to anyone looking for a fun night. It costs 10$ per person, younger children and seniors 7$, and on Wednesday nights for 20$ you can stuff a car with however many will fit.
Note: Photos from the Mansfield site, and not our own. I've only been at night, which wasn't conducive of good pictures.
Places we've gone, things we've seen, stories worth telling
