MOUNT AIRY, NC — After fifty-five years, the Bright Leaf Drive-in has closed. According the theater’s website, all of the equipment is for sale.

The drive-in theater on North Andy Griffith Parkway was closed last weekend. The owner of the land where the drive-in is located decided not to renew the lease with the current theater owners.

“It is our understanding that the land is going to be sold and there they will no more drive-in,” the Web site says.
