45 Outdoor

New London


New London's drive-in theater is slowly falling down. The small ticket booth sits next to the overgrown entrance road leading into the theater grounds. The fence that surrounded the theater is falling apart with mostly only the posts standing. The projection booth / concession stand building sits in the middle of an overgrown field near some newer storage buildings. Surprisingly, only the screen is actually missing. The marquis is still standing along old hwy 45. Even the highway that is the theater's namesake isn't there any more.
