I don’t think they are open this season. Phone line has been disconnected for several months. Went by yesterday and the place looked abandoned. The marquee listed “Taken 2” and “Pitch Perfect”. Those titles are out of date now. I believe that this is the first dark year they have ever had in it’s entire history. I hoped to find a new phone number here. Looks grim for now.

It appears the Kings has closed for good. Drive-ins.com has updated their status to Closed. Last year, there were news reports from the owners about the uncertainty of opening in 2013. Constant vandalism and the high cost of repairs seem to be the culprit. Then there is the massive cost of digital conversion on top of that. I never did make it out here for a night at the Kings drive-in. Only a few daytime visits, and those were depressing enough.

The overview is incorrect. I don’t know when the drive-in closed for the season last year. But the link from Aug. 23, 2008 is for Sept. 2005, that’s when 40 Year Old Virgin & Deuce Bigalow came out.
