I went to the Rock Hill Drive-In one time during the summer of 1963. I had never been to a drive-in before or since. My family and I went to see “Tom Jones.” Since it was a double-feature, we saw the second feature first, one of the British “Carry On” films. Then there was a long intermission and coming attractions. At that point my younger brother, who was about 5 at the time, started crying that he wanted to go home. Since we couldn’t get him to stop, we had to leave before ever seeing the main feature. I do remember seeing the great trailer for “How the West Was Won,” one of my all-time favorite films, it was the high-point of my visit to the Rock Hill Drive-In.

Yeah, I noticed he had 510,but my book says 425.I have had CT readers tell me a good many of these books used,the parking on cars is sometimes way off.

I’ve just uploaded a picture of the entrance taken in June 2006. Drove back into the lot and there’s nothing to see. It looked like the image linked to by rivest266 above.
