Sunset Drive-In opens tonight and features ‘Avengers’ and ‘Black Panther’

Local News

It’s a sure sign of summer in Waterford with one of the state’s only drive-in theaters opening its gates tonight.  

The owners at the Sunset Drive-In are preparing for their first crowd of the season.  The theater is playing two blockbuster hits, ‘Avengers’ and ‘Black Panther’ this weekend. 

The gates open tonight at 7:30 and the first movie will play at dusk.  The owners tell us this season they’re celebrating 70 years in business.

Co-Owner Dennis Koper says, “It’s amazing, really, because somebody did some research on it in the library, I guess, and they said this is the oldest operating… continuously operating theater in the country.” 

The Sunset Drive-In typically sees a few hundred people its opening night, but the owners say it all depends on the weather.
