Virginia Drive-Ins

Virginia's very first drive-in theater was built back during the mid 1940's. At its peak, the state had more than 140 drive-ins operating within the state. Since the 1950's though their numbers have dropped significantly and the state now has just 7 remaining drive-ins. Virginia is also home to America's first non-profit drive-in, the Hull Drive-in Theater, which was saved from closing in 2000 when members of the community formed a non-profit group for its contiued operation.
