My May 25, 2011 post is incorrect. The movie theatre was in town. In the photo given is the flat roof building the former projection/concession building? If so, was it moved to the present day location?

Above address is incorrect. Approx. location for this drive-in was Mecklenburg Hwy south of Eastport Trail. Though barely visible, you can still make out the ramps. Use 1652 Mecklenburg Highway, Mooresville, NC to map.

Chuck: These former Mooresville theatres should be on CT. If anyone knows information, please add these names. Thanks.

It’s where the senior center is located now.

Wasn’t there a theatre in downtown Mooresville until at least the ‘70s? I swear I remember seeing “Cold Turkey” with Dick Van Dyke there.

Mark from Davidson: My grandparents' home is almost directly across Hwy 115 from this site. I remember this drive-in from my childhood, but for some reason they would never take us there!

Mark from Davidson: Suppose you are aware pf the theatre plans for Davidson though I wish it were going to be a single screen rather than 4 screen..more like a “restaurant that shows movies” type of venue. Did you know that Davidson had a movie theatre years ago where the old gas station used to stand?

It’s only a field now and probably destined to become part of residential development.

(1950s? – 1985). 1 screen that faced the road. Last feature: “Romancing the Stone”. You had to pick-up/plug-in/turn-in your speaker (this was good if you drove off and forgot to take the speaker off of your driver’s side window—-it would simply unplug itself from the stand). The grill only had a Grade B health rating but the burgers were great! (Carolina classic style) MEMORIES: My sister and I agravating my Dad by drawing finger-pictures in the back window condensation. Hitchcock’s “Psycho”, it was on it’s 4th or 5th run as the 2nd half of a double feature with Disney’s “That Darned Cat!” (little kids such as myself should have been asleep by then). I got scared and cried during the shower scene to which my Mom replied, “That’s not blood it’s only ketchup!” In my teen years a frequent late 2nd feature was :“Vanishing Point”(that naked blonde riding up on the chopper would never happen to me)
