Sunset Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Sunset Drive-In was opened prior to 1955 when it was operated by the Ellis brothers & Joe Feeney. It is the last open drive-in located in the Clarksburg area, located on Highway 19 a few miles south of Shinnston, and north of Clarksburg. It is a beauty! It is located adjacent to the Ellis Restaurant and has been owned by the Ellis family since 1955.

It has a huge screen with a home built into the screen tower. The drive-in is open seasonally, and the restaurant is open year-round. An interesting feature is that the drive-in sign is located on the other side of the highway from the drive-in. The Sunset Drive-In is located in a beautiful scenic location in the West Virginia mountains, and is well worth the visit if you are in the area.

Rice’s Drive Inn and Sunset Drive Inn are two different properties, and they were/are owned/operated by two different families. Although only about 4 miles apart, Rice’s closed in the late 50’s. The Sunset is still open and operated by the Ellis family.
