In the early 1970s the Bright Leaf was Kinston’s mainstream drive-in, showing typical drive-in films (not X-rated adult films). The other drive-in in Kinston at the time, the North 11 Drive-In near Graingers, was showing only X-rated movies. The Bright Leaf shut down because Stewart & Everett decided to take over a failed indoor theater at Kinston Plaza; this left the North 11 Drive-In as the last drive-in standing in Kinston and Lenoir County.
