A Lot of Blockbuster movies played at the Tar Heel Drive In during the mid-1950’s through the early-to-mid 1970’s before the once great drive-in succumbed to the level of showing “XXX” rated films in the late-1970’s and early 1980’s.

STAR WARS played here at the Tar Heel Drive-In Theatre during many of it’s re-releases on July 21,1978. It was the only time that this movie played as a re-release in the greater High Point and Archdale areas.
