Airport Drive-In

The Airport Drive-In opened in 1951 and had a 200 car capacity. It was located down the road from the Galax Airport. From 1983 thru its closing in the late-1980’s it played adult films.

Any further information or corrections to this drive-in would be appreciated.

I have it parking 175 cars in 1956 and owned by R.F.Jones.

This drive-in was located just south of Pipers Gap on S. Main Street. Approx. address 1007 S. Main St. (Hwy 89)

The address 1007 S. Main St., Galax, VA as reported by jwmovies is as close as Google will allow. The property now hosts a self-storage business and car wash with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

Interestingly enough, not even in the 1963 aerial is there evidence of an airport or airfield nearby at least that I can see. So, just how did it get its name?
