Exmore Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located near U.S. Route 13, the Exmore Drive-In opened in 1958 as the Super 13 Drive-In. In 1967 the name was changed to the Exmore Drive-In. This drive-in closed around 1986.

Address above is incorrect. Approx. location for this drive-in was on Oakland Dr. between Duer Ct. & Main St.

A closer address is 11490 Oakland Dr, Exmore, VA. You can still see remnants of the screen and marquee, but the ramps have disappeared as the location is now private property. http://tinyurl.com/l2tgdgu

However, this drive-in does NOT appear in a 1967 aerial photo as the land remains undeveloped. In the same photo, you can see the partial remains of a drive-in approximately ¼ mile to the northwest being swallowed by the new construction of the Langford HWY. It’s address today is 4376 Lankford Hwy, Exmore, VA with the NMA Bank and another building sitting on the property. http://tinyurl.com/mwytgn4

It seems that the highway construction forced the closure of the drive-in and a new one was built a short distance away.

The Super 13 and Exmore DI’s “could” have been separate drive-ins. The Super 13 “could” have closed and the DI was moved across the road, rebuilt and renamed as the Exmore DI. It would require “boots on the ground” research to figure it out.

What can be said is that the information in the description does not appear to be accurate or complete. I cannot say what is true or not (which is why I included the word “seems” in my previous post), But I can say that the current location of the Exmore Drive-In did not exist before 1967.
