Hull's Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Hull’s Drive-In opened on August 5, 1950 as the Lee Drive-In with a capacity for 300 cars. In August 1957 the Lee Drive-In was sold and renamed Hull’s Drive-In. After the 1998 season, the drive-in closed.

In 2000 local residents formed a group called “Hull’s Angels” and dedicated themselves to find a way to re-open the drive-in. In 2000 this group leased the property and opened the drive-in. In 2001 after significant fundraising, the group purchased the drive-in and it remains open today. Hull’s Drive-In is America’s only non-profit community-owned drive-in.

Before my twin sons were jerked out of college at Southern Virginia University nearby and sent to beautiful Baghdad for a year’s paid vacation in body armour,they enjoyed this rare place.A bunch of those care-free kids would make a real party of it.Nice people run it with a great attitude.A body shop next door is a customer of mine,so I see it regularly.
