Saw TORA TORA there.Then you’d head to Lendy’s a few hundred yards West for that after theater treat and to see who was with who.It was a pretty good drive in.The valley used to have several,all long gone.I guess the Hull is the closest one to Roanoke now.Hope this fellow will list the legendary drive in S on 220.

Mucho thanks for the Lendy’s pages.Boy!Did those waft me back through the ages.I remembered my fender-bender in the Franklin Rd.location on prom night ‘64.I would have one disagreement,a lot of Cave Spring people went to Lee Hi.Yeas that was the 220 Drive In I was refering to.I remember it ,like the Salem Theater,had a brief turn showing porn before the lights went out.Have you been to the place on Shenedoah Ave that serves Lendy’s food?

Roanoke had so many Drive Ins for its size during 1960-1985. I remember the North 11 Drive In, The Dixie Drive In, The Lee Hi Drive In,The Shanendoah Drive In, The Trail Drive In and the 220 Drive In.

This Drive-in wasn’t listed in the 1956 motion Picture Almanac for some reason.
