June 6th

Today is
* First Drive-in Movie Theater Opens In New Jersey in 1933.
The drive in theater here in Mount Airy recently closed. It was so sad that no one with money wanted to keep it open. I used to love going to the drive in. This site lists local drive ins for NC but its not up to date since it still shows the one here in Mt Airy being open. If you go to the main menu you can check out your state.
