Operated as the Sidney Lust from 1949 to 1969 then became the Hampton Drive in from 1969 to 1979. XXX in its last days. The rear of the big screen faced the Pembroke Ave, the main drag at that time between Newport News and Hampton.

There is a page before this on the site that gives dates and some history. I usually post the larger photo.

Where is the 1948 date on the photo? Perhaps you can point out my oversight.
