Chapel Hill Boulevard at Garrett Road,
1 person favorited this theater
Very interesting of the several drive-in theatres that operated in the Durham area. Located at the intersection of Chapel Hill Boulevard at Garrett Road just off U.S. 15-501(the area where the drive-in theatre stood is now a shopping center complex).
The Carolina-Duke Drive-In was just that….the drive-in theatre that was between the towns of Durham and Chapel Hill and 8 miles apart from both the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and also not far from Duke University.
The drive-in theatre opened in 1949 with a car capacity about over 300 to 400. After more than 26 years of serving the greater Triangle, the drive-in theatre closed its doors forever in the early 1970’s, possibly 1973.
