Ben Allen built a drive-in between Wendell and Zebulon fusing the city names together and called the Wen-Lon Drive-In. The theatre launched in 1949. Allen also was operating the Car-Ral Drive-In at the time. The Wen-Lon Drive-In was closed by 1951.

By 1952 it had reopened as White’s Drive-In, operated by E.A. White. It was still open in 1957

Found It!

The address is 4905 Wendell Boulevard, Wendell, NC. The drive-in was located just to the northeast of the town on the north side of Wendell Blvd near where it connects with Old Zebulon Road.

A 1964 aerial shows the drive-in intact, although it is difficult to tell if it was still in operation.

Today, the area is overgrown with no trace of the drive-in remaining save for the entrance road which has been renamed “Drive In Lane”.
