Badin Road Drive In
North Carolina was once one of the top 10 drive-in venues in the country, with more than 200 outdoor cinemas operating. Since the peak years of the late 1950’s, the number of functioning drive-ins has declined 96%. Presently, eight remain in operation.
Originally built in 1948, The Badin Road Drive-in Theater’s venerable solo screen had gone dark, but was repaired, revived, and re-opened in 1994 with a capacity of nearly 700 cars.
Today the site features Wi-Fi access, FM stereo audio, and a playground for children. With tickets at $7 for adults, $4 for children 6 to 11, and children 5 and under free, this is one of the most affordable and unique family nights out you’ll find anywhere!
