What was it?
The Mohawk Trail Community Drive In was a one time popular place to see movies. Little is published about it. It was opened in the 1940s or 1950s by the late Carl Nilman and closed in 1986. The screen was removed by the late 1990s. The marquee and projection building are still standing. The late projectionist, Bernie Butler, saved the "1927 carbon-arc 35mm projectors."
