No remnants of the last location of the theater show up since it is now Tarrymore Square shopping center at the corner of New Hope Church Rd. and Capital Blvd. The location listed above is incorrect.

Note that the Forest Drive-In, when new in 1949, was located on the east side of what is now Capital Blvd and the 440 beltline. See https://www.facebook.com/olderaleigh/photos/a.1014461058646179/1870401096385500/?type=3&theater

The second location is described above. Neither locations were on Old Wake Forest Rd as indicated.
