Hull's Drive-in
Lexington, VA

Hull's Drive-in opened in 1950 as the single-screen Lee Drive-In. In August 1957, Sebert Hull bought the drive-in and renamed it after himself. Hull and his wife ran the drive-in for the next 40 years. In 1998, Mrs. Hull sold the place to the adjacent body shop which ran the place for the rest of the year. When the drive-in did not reopen in 1998, local residents formed a non-profit group called Hull's Angels and raised money to repair and reopen the drive-in in 2000. A new screen tower was built by 2015. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
