This one screen drive-in was located at Shore Drive in Virginia Beach, close to Bayside. It was a part of Price Enterprises who a owned majority of all the drive-ins in the Tidewater region. The Shore Drive-In was opened in 1955 by Visulite Theatres, with a capacity for 900 cars. An unusual feature was the location of the concession building, which rather than being at or near the center of the site, was placed at one end. The building had an outdoor patio area with tables. There was a childrens playground with swings and slides.
My dad Charles used to work as a projectionist here. One night while checking out a broken speaker box, a swarm of yellow jackets flew out and stung the crap out of him.
It closed in the late-1970’s or early-1980’s. Today condos sit where it used to be.
