|The Moonlite Drive-in opened in 1949 and is the oldest continuously-operating drive-in in Virginia. It closed in 2013. After extensive renovations, there were plans to reopen in 2017. However, the partners had a falling out that that never happened. As of 2018, the sign and screentower are still in bad shape and there is a "for sale" sign on the property.

|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 this website. [map]|
