Goochland drive-in theater to open this summer

HADENSVILLE, VA — A new drive-in is coming to Goochland County.

John and Kristina Heidel last month received approval from the county to move forward with the Goochland Drive-In Theater, to be located on 10 acres in Hadensville off Interstate 64.

“It’s been a dream for a lot of years, and we just finally decided to go for it,” said John Heidel, 39, who recently sold his dry-cleaning business. “We live in Goochland and we like the rural nature and the culture here, and driving is part of rural America. We thought this would be in keeping with the character.”

How exciting!! Although I don’t reside in that general area of the country, I’m happy for the new drive-in theatre that’s coming up. Here’s hoping all the residents enjoy the fruits of this wonderful idea. Hope they run all kinds of movies, and not just the schlocky ones that’re played today, in the multiplex cinemas.
