Very interesting of the several drive-in theatres that operated in the Durham area. Located at the intersection of Chapel Hill Boulevard at Garrett Road just off U.S. 15-501(the area where the drive-in theatre stood is now a shopping center complex).
The Carolina-Duke Drive-In was just that….the drive-in theatre that was between the towns of Durham and Chapel Hill and 8 miles apart from both the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and also not far from Duke University.
The Drive-In opened on July 2, 1949 with Ginger Rogers in “Vivacious Lady”. It was reopened as the Carolina-Duke Drive-In with Jane Wyman in “Cheyenne”. After more than 26 years of serving the greater Triangle, the Carolina-Duke Drive-In closed its gates forever in November 1975, and was demolished in early-1976.
