I don’t believe the pointed-roofed building you describe was ever a ticket booth for the drive-in. For one, it’s nearly a mile from that building to the theater screen down Chapel Hill Road. The earliest occupant I can remember was the Pine Tree Pet Shop – which, of course, played into the pointed roof, which is indeed shaped like an evergreen. Today, it is in fact a candy store (I drive by it twice daily). The Outdoor is still open as I type this…it’ll close for the season after Labor Day. Not sure the owners plan to close, in that they made a big deal this summer about having a “new” screen.
