Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
Man did that place turn into a pond when it rained hard. The Rustic was an X rated drive in at the time, but us teens in northern Rhode Islander had plenty of options during the late 70`s early 80`s. The Quaker in Uxbridge, Milford Drive-in in Mendon, Bellingham, and Sutton as well were close by. And having to drive up Rt.146 in Mass, a 2 lane road at the time. You had to watch out for deer darting across the road, as well as drunk drivers veering into your lane!
Befor it was a drive in it was all pasture and there was a dozen or so horses in the field, and a small group of us from the Cumberland side of Lonsdale would go there and ride the horses bare back, what a rush that was for a little kid, we also played Pop Warner base ball there close to the Bridge over the Blackstone River.
The Rustic deserves its own entry, ah ha ha ha ha.
Saw some flicks there in the mid 80's... Nice.
