Fort Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Fort Drive-In opened around 1967 as a single screen drive-in owned by Howell Theatres. In 1971 a second screen was added. The original screen was used for family movies and the second screen was dedicated to more adult oriented movies. The first movies shown on screen two were Russ Meyer’s, “The Seven Minutes” and “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”. The Fort Drive-In closed in 1986. Part of the former drive-in is used as a flea market.

I never got to see any movies at the drive-in. I always read the Lynchburg paper to see what was playing at all the drive-ins around. My now husband took me to see Once Upon a Midnight (I think was the title – it was a Sidney Sheldon novel) at the twin hardtop built later on.
