The street view is wrong. It’s actually at 35.269099, -81.319249.

From Fox 46 News: For 65 years, families have enjoyed the Bessemer City Kings Mountain Drive-In Theate At $10 a carload, the drive-in has welcomed thousands. This weekend, the drive-in will roll films for the final time. It’s closing because Hollywood isn’t producing the film the theater uses anymore. Friday, August 29- Sunday, August 30, the drive-in will show three films back-to-back-to-back. The first feature film is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and then 22 Jump Street. Header should read closed.

I was driving by on the way back from Atlanta and decided to swing by this drive-in. There’s a no trespassing sign, so we just pulled into the main entrance and didn’t go on the actual grounds. I inquired with the owner several months ago about buying it, but they already had sold to his brother and didn’t know what the plans were. It’s still defunct and doesn’t look like anything is happening anytime soon. The screen is starting to get holes in it — sad…
