One of the remaining drive-in theatres that is in operation in the greater Triangle area. The other one was the Starlite Drive-In Theatre in Durham,NC which is still in operation,but has closed due to renovation and who knows when this drive-in theatre will open soon.

In 1956 it parked 360 cars and was owned by S.S.Stevenson. In his book “STROKE OF FORTUNE” about the Carolina Theatre Business,author William C.Cline writes about this Drive-in.“the operator at the time was a man called N.T."Tinker"Lyles and he was never happy with the booking.nothing ever came close to being right.You just could not please the man.”
