Sorry, I made a mistake on this. The ABC Drive-In opened on 8/27/53. Its opening attraction was PONY EXPRESS.

Saw many movies her between 1960-1962 and 1964-1966. I live in the Southview apts off of Oxon hill Rd. The one movie I remember seeing there was a re-issue of Gone With The Wind. Alao saw movies down the highway at the Sky Chief. During the run of Lord Jim I and a couple of others got thrown out for being drunk & disorderly because we kept running by the projection booth and making hand shadows on the screen. I don’t know why they got upset. Of course this was in my younger years.

Correctio or above. I actually think it was the Super Chief not the Sky Chief. I’m not positive.
