Mike…don’t think I’ve ever heard of “The Body Shop” but it sounds sorta gruesome! Since you could meet the “stars” of the film do you know if it was produced locally?

June 23 1972 HENDERSONVILLE OUTDOOR CINEMA is playing HORROR beyond Belief! “THE BODY SHOP” second Feature NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and Third feature on Friday and Saturday is “WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH HELEN?” “THE BODY SHOP” was presented in 4 DIMENSION for extreme Realism. On Saturday night they played the “BODY SHOP” at the CAROLINA 1 so folks in Hendersonville could MEET THE STARS!!! It certainly wasn’t Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee.
These kinds of ads are pricless and our papers use to be filled with them.

I don’t know anything about headers ,but it closed as HENDERSONVILLE OUTDOOR CINEMA, The JOY DRIVE In , In Hendersonville closed as JOY OUTDOOR CINEMA,I think the owners were trying to give it a jazzy sound. Still a Drive-in theatre.
