Opened with “Vivacious Lady”. Opened as Carolina-Duke Drive-in with a Looney Tunes cartoon( Inki at the circus), and “Cheyenne”.

Chuck 1231 is right about the location of this drive-in theatre. It was at the corner of Garrett Road and Chapel Hill Road(which is now Chapel Hill Blvd.)that opened in 1949 with a capacity of 300 cars. It closed in late-1975 and not 1973. This information will be updated for the Cinema Treasures site.

It opened in 1949 and closed in late-1975.

The drive-in was on the site of where the Oak Creek Village Shopping Center is now (where T.J. Maxx Department Store and a Bojangles Restaurant now sits)

The name sounds like an attempt to please both campuses.
