North 11 Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The North 11 Drive-In was Kinston’s last surviving drive-in theater, operating until about 1980. Throughout the 1970’s, it was Kinston and Lenoir County’s only dedicated adult theater, showing X-rated films exclusively. The North 11 Drive-In was located on NC Highway 11 North just south of Graingers, with the southern end of Smith Colony Road terminating at the theater entrance. All that remained of the North 11 Drive-In for many years was its marquee (an inverted trapezoid-shaped sign), driveway and ticket booth. These vanished in 2014.

A few years after switching to porn, the North 11 Drive-In put up high-powered lights along the side facing Highway 11; this was done to block free viewing of the XXX films playing (the screen previously was visible to northbound traffic).

The last remnants of the North 11 Drive-In (marquee and ticket booth) have been demolished.
