Wow 3 years? Anyone know the story behind why this died so quick?

Who has information on the Plantation Drive-In on Route 460? I remember that place well. Went there as a child with my family during the 1950s & 60s. I also recall going there as late as 1973 as a young adult.

I grew up in Suffolk and still live there. The original location is just down the road from where I now live. I grew up in the 1300 block of Holland Road but this drive in was way before my time. I was born in 1971.

I do remember being able to see the remnants of the Plantation Drive in on rt. 460. I went to Nansemond Suffolk Academy so I would see it through the trees on my way to school every day.
