Skyline Drive-in
Clarksburg, WV
Jungle Drive-in

I believe the Skyline Drive-in was built around 1950 and closed around 1985. The arrow has been rebuilt and the sign advertises for the A-1 Exterminating Co. [map]

The Jungle Drive-in opened in 1953 and is still in operation. Originally, there was a giant ape at the entrance and workers dressed in jungle-style outfits. For more, see this website. [map]
