I do believe the Midway Drive In was on US 70 near I-85 . The drive in on 98 was the Forest Drive In if I am not mistaken.
Whoops. I believe you are right. Anyone know exactly where this was on 70?
The theater was located on old Hillsborough Rd. It was across Hillsborough Rd.from the Duke Energy Complex . I think it was on the land that Operations Drive is located on.
Thanks Anon- I have to approve all comments because of spam. Thanks to your help, I found it on a 1972 aerial. Fortunately drive-ins are pretty distinctive on aerial views.
Before it went XX, it was a nice Drive In theater for families. My parents would load up us 4 kids, with a picnic basket, and head to the Midway on a warm summer night. We would watch the movies from the back of a pickup truck, or sit on benches that were provided in front of the screen. I don't remember any movie that I saw there, but I remember we had fun. Sometimes we got hotdogs, and candy and popcorn from the snack bar. I remember I always knew we were near the Drive In when I saw the lights on the 3 radio towers thru the woods on the left. This was early 50s, before I-85 of course.
It was there at least into the mid 70s, don't know when it was demolished.
