Northwood Dr & Alexander Ave, Salisbury, MD 21801

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

I went to this drive-in many times as a teen, as well as Delmar Drive-in, Sussex West Drive-in (Laurel, DE), Kent Drive-in (Dover, DE), Diamond State Drive-in (Felton, DE), and Crossroads Drive-in (Denton, MD). Drive in movie theaters were a big part of Delmarva culture in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s when I was a teenager. Diamond State Drive-in was resurrected in the 1990’s and showed first run movies until 2008 when they lost their lease due to the death of the elderly land owner. That drive-in operator went on to purchase the Skowhegan Drive-in theater in Maine, and it is still in operation as of 2016, although currently being closed for the winter.

I’ll just store this here.

Boxoffice, Aug. 11, 1958: “Salisbury, Md. - The Ulman Theatre Corp. is planning to build a drive-in theatre near here. Bernard Ulman, Baltimore, circuit president, who was here to look over the proposed site, said that the drive-in possibly will be located on Route 13. The airer will accommodate 500-700 cars.”
