Many of the addresses on that website are incorrect. Thats the reason that I don’t include them.

Here is one example. Look at the address on the link that TC posted. Now look at the matchbook advertising this theater on Route 24 at this link:

Thing is, highway numbering often changes over decades. If you look at the old topo map that’s linked from the page, yeah, it WAS located off of Route 24. However, that section was bypassed years ago, and is now Route 131.

Approx. address for this drive-in would have been around 510 Old Courthouse Road. The entrance was where Hwy 131 and Hwy 460 meet. Jones St. runs through wehere the theatre stood.
