Drive-In 54 commented about South #1 Drive-In on Dec 3, 2013 at 9:31 am

I emailed the library and here is the answer:

“I believe we have found a little more information on the Car-Ral Drive-In Theatre. According to an advertisement from the Raleigh News & Observer from August 1st, 1948, the location of the theatre was "US No. 1 South Opposite WPTF Towers”, which are near East Chatham Street in Cary today, just south of what is now NC 54 (if my geography is correct, which is often a shaky proposition) . Another article from the News & Observer of May 18, 1952 has a picture of the damage done by heavy winds ,forcing the drive-in to close temporarily. An ad from the October 15, 1953 News and Observer shows the theatre having reopened as “South #1 Drive-In Theatre”. The fact that the new name is a reflection of the location of the Car-Ral’s location leads me to believe that they were the same theater."

In looking aerial from 1964 (bad picture and TOPO maps show nothing)there is something showing. Since it was a small DI maybe that is it??

The Sundance lost it’s main screen tower during a tornado on November 17, 2013. It is the original screen tower that was put in 1949. Great Eastern Theatres is planning to replace it.
