Google Earth shows a Theatre Road just off of VA 17. No real evidence of any drive-in ramps, but a couple of spots that might have been of enough size to house a drive-in.

This one was unique, as it was a traditional twin co-located with the drive-in. It closed in the mid-1990s – I think it was around the time that the Regal down the street in Kiln Creek opened. As another poster mentions, the property was redeveloped and is now a Super Wal-mart.
