Milford, New Hampshire: Milford Drive-In Theater

The drive-in theater – what an American institution! And the Milford theater is one of the longest running, having just celebrated their 50th anniversary. So load up the lawn chairs, blankets, and bug spray and head over for an evening of double-feature fun. Where else can you and all your best buddies, canine and otherwise, enjoy a night out for just 20 bucks? The Milford theater has a playground to keep the little ones busy until Bob the Projectionist starts running “olde tyme” pre-movie announcements on the two big screens. Many folks toss around Frisbees and footballs in the roads until dusk, too – an activity that, of course, is off limits to those of us for whom both etiquette and the management rules require we stay leashed. Please note you need cash for the entrance fee (which includes up to six people per vehicle), but the concession stand takes credit cards and has an ATM.
