There is a 220 drive-in Listed in Asheboro and Biscoe,N.C. Wonder if they are the same,Both are listed Separately in my 1956 Motion Picture Almanac.

In an aerial photo from 83' this drive-in looks pretty grown over. It also is listed on the topographic maps from 59' and 68', but not 1974. Thinking it maybe closed before 1985?

I am from Asheboro, when I was a kid, we went to he drive in many times. Later, I took several dates to the Drive-in during my senior year of High School 1982 – 1983 time frame. I remember it closing a few years after I graduated and joined the Army. 1985 sounds about right. It was a bit run down back then, but it was still operational. after the movies stopped running, they used the property to hold flea market for another couple of years.
