Hi Carol! 

Regarding the Drive-Ins ... there was a York Drive In on route 17??? 

I just found it on the website AND I used to live behind it!!!  I keep trying to figure out where it was!!!

..... Now, to Sarah Sugah's (Puckett Kressaty - '65 - of VA) question regarding where the York Drive-In was located, it was where the Wal-Mart Super Center now stands at the intersection of route #17 and Victory Boulevard. That's the only one that I know of that was ever in York County. When the Drive-In was there Victory Boulevard didn't exist!
Take Care!

Yup, there was a York Drive-In and knew it was there.  Still trying to zero in on it as it wasn't in Newport News nor Hampton but in Tabb, Va.

Ahh... here we go.  It was built in 1947 but closed in 1972 - 270 Cars.  Was owned at that time by Moe Cohen.  Torn down and reopened in 1974 as Cinema City Drive-In and had 2 screens and an indoor theater on the same site but shut down in 1990.  Has since been torn down and a Wal-Mart Super Center stands there today at the corner of Rt. 17 and Victory Boulevard.  Will check for the "theater" address but the Wal-Mart one is 2601 George Washington Memorial Highway, Tabb, VA 23693 - about 1 mile outside of the Newport News limits.
