Winchester Drive-In

Opened on June 25, 1958, it was the first drive-in in the Winchester area. The opening attraction was "Ladies Man". In December 1982 the Winchester Drive-In had gone to X-Rated features. The drive-in closed in 1986.

It has been demolished and there is now a strip mall where the ozoner once stood anchored by Full House Cycles.

The Winchester Drive-In is one out of two drive-ins in Winchester, with the other one being the Royal Drive-In (1949-Mid 1970s; which will have its own Cinema Treasures page soon). Also, special thanks to the archives of the Winchester Evening Star, I made a mistake on the year the Royal closed.

In December 1982, the Manos Cinema VI (now AMC Apple Blossom 12) opened its doors as the adjacent to the Apple Blossom Mall. The Winchester Drive-In had no choice but to switch its format to X-rated features either around the same time or a shorter time later in connection to the opening of the Manos Cinema VI.

Boxoffice, April 13, 1970: “Bobby Goldhammer had two of his situations damaged by the recent windstorm. The screen of the Winchester Drive-In and the marquee on the Plaza Theatre, both in Winchester, Va., were blown down.”
