Drive-In Movie and Motel

Days gone by. The drive-in movie motel has seen better times, but still we can remember what it was like.

[Howard, 05/01/2016]
Drive-In Movie Motel

One of only two "sleep in" motel drive-ins in the U.S. (the other's in Colorado). Built as the Hi-Way 5 Drive-In in 1950, its name was changed to the Fairlee Motel and Drive-In Theater in the 1960s when a dozen motel rooms were added. Experience the rare thrill of watching a drive-in movie from the comfort of your motel room, with the sound piped in. The motel is open year-round, the drive-in from May through at least September. The Fairlee shows new releases, choosing films that it feels work best in a drive-in.
