If you grew up in the Lakes Region or vacationed at Weir’s Beach with family during your summer break, you may be sad to hear that the Weirs Drive-in has been sold. 


Patricia Baldi, the owner of the Weirs Drive-In Theatre says it's time to retire. Baldi, who is 78-years-old and her late husband Lawrence, had owned the business since 1974.

According to the Laconia Daily Sun, the 12-acre piece of property is reportedly being sold for $2.5 million to a businessman who is planning on building condos and a commercial development on the land.

The Weirs Drive-In which has been a family destination since it first opened in 1948, was one of the very first drive-in movie theatres and is also one of the very few remaining in New Hampshire.

The Weirs Drive-In will reportedly close Labor Day.
