Forest Drive-In

One of several drive-in theatres located in the greater Raleigh area. This drive-in theatre was located on Capital Boulevard in the Brentwood section of North Raleigh(which was also known as North Boulevard).

This was in its day a good sized drive-in theatre with a car capacity of over 400. It closed in the late-1970’s and was demolished in the mid-1980’s. A storage facility has been erected where the drive-in theatre once stood on Capital Boulevard.

Was called the Forest Drive In. Became a flee market during the weekend days in the 80s. I saw The Towering Inferno here as a small child in the early 70s.

This is the second location. The name changed to Forest Drive-in when it was moved north from its original location which is under the Cliff Benson Beltline, just north of Yonkers Rd.

It probably was moved to make way for the Beltline construction.
