Small drive-in located in the mountains just outside of Brevard. It was opened prior to 1955. After closing, it sat vacant until about 2004 until it was replaced by an outdoor sports complex.

BREVARD,North Carolina had TWO drive-ins,the Bervard Drive-in and STAR Drive-in. Both parked 200 cars. Brevard was owned by E.M.Marks as was the STAR DRIVE-In. in 1956.

Edward (or E.M.) Marks was co-owner of the Brevard Drive-In in the early 1950s but if he also owned the Star Drive-In it was not in 1956. By 1956, Marks was in Wilmington, NC overseeing the drive-in theatres there (including the Starway).

Hello Mike – I believe, though not 100% positive, that Edward Marks would have been gone from Brevard by 1954. Guess the Almanac runs somewhat behind (makes sense considering it would have to be compiled in advance). Cool – didn’t know there were Motion Picture Almanacs.

Thanks Mike for the info. I did confirm that Edward Marks was gone from Brevard by 1954 – in fact, he was gone by 1953, so those Almanacs were definitely behind. (or they didn’t update them carefully)
