Delaware’s last drive-in closes
FELTON, DE — The last drive-in theater in Delaware is closing Saturday. The theater operator can’t afford to buy the land and the property owners want to sell.
The Diamond State Drive-in Theater opened in 1949 and converted to adult films in 1966 until 1985. The screens were dark from then until 1995 when the present operator reopened it.
However, the operator has bought another closed drive-in in Chincoteague, Virginia and hopes to open by 2010.
