Jimmy Evans had a dream to build a drive-in theatre. He already had a name in mind, the Rocket Drive-In near Salisbury, North Carolina, but in the County of Rowan. Jimmy made the rounds talking to film bookers in Charlotte, N.C., but as he put it he was laughed out of the high rise. The concession stand was run by his wife, Candy. He wanted 35mm projectors, but when that did not come through he got two Twin Bell and Howell 16mm projectors, he had to build a wooden tower closer to the screen for presentation. His first movie was "Cannonball Run" and "W.W. and the Dixie Dance Kings" on June 22, 1997.
