Siler City Drive-In

Located off Highway 64 West on the other side of Siler City, this drive-in theatre was a favorite and the only operating drive-in theatre in all of Chatham County. It opened June 15, 1949 as the Siler City Outdoor Theatre. Specializing in family films as well as first-run features, grindhouse films and all, the drive-in closed in the mid-1980’s. It has since been demolished.

I followed the Google Map Photo along Highway 64 from Siler City west to Ranseur, the next town, and didn’t really see any remains of a drive-in. Anyone else have any better luck? Better yet, does anyone know the exact location?

I understand the drive-in held 190 autos.

The exact location of the drive-in theatre was on Highway 64 West where the road splits. Highway 64 West and I think the road that goes into the business district is where the theatre was located and it would be to your immediate left facing U.S. 64 West. And it is before you reach the intersection where Highway 64 and Old U.S. 421
(basically,the U.S. 421 Business,which was the old 421 highway that goes into the business district of Siler City)meet and it would be still within the city limits.

Highway 64 West towards Ramseur you may have pass it. Ramseur is the next town that is right on the Chatham-Randolph County Line just a good 12 miles from Siler City. Go too far you’re end up in Asheboro and near the North Carolina Zoological Park.
