North Carolina Drive-In Theaters

Once Home to Hundreds, NC is Still Home to Five Drive-In Movie Theaters


While the drive-in movie theater may seem like a relic from days gone by, there are still a few standing around North Carolina. A look at a list of former drive-in theaters in the state yields a list of over 200, a testament to the popularity these theaters used to hold. NC is currently home to five drive-in movie theaters, still showing first-run films in small towns across the state. Check out this list to find the one closest to you. Is there one that I missed that needs to be on this list? Has a former one returned to operation? Let me know at charlotte@aboutguide.com and I'll get it included.
