The King Drive-In opened prior to 1950 with parking ramp that held 224 cars. It was operated by D. E. Gwynn of Eden Theatres, Leaksville, North Carolina. Porter Garrett McGee, known as ‘Fibber McGee’ purchased the King Drive-In in the mid-1950’s. He operated it with his first wife’s sister & husband (Mr & Mrs Harvey Hendrix) as co-owners and Mrs Hendrix as manager. It featured a stage for musical acts before show, which was common for drive-in’s in the 1950’s-1960. It was closed in mid-1974 due to lack of business and it was sold. It is now Sheetz Convenience Store.
