It was located off Alexander Boulevard (formerly Albemarle Highway 29) in the Northern part of the city. Opened in 1954, the Hitching Post Drive-In had a car capacity of 392. It was showing first-run features, mainly “B” movies to keep afloat until the late-1960’s when the format was changed to showing “XXX” rated films before it closed in 1989. It has since been demolished.

It became a notorious ADULT theatre during the 1970’s and 1980’s that showed a lot of “XXX” rated films when it was known as Joe’s Drive-In. And some ODD ADULT FILMS played here…one of them was titled(and I’m not making this up) “PEBBLES GETS BAMM-BAMM”
