880 U.S. 13, Pocomoke City, MD 21851

Opened August 14, 1953 with the film, “Bird of Paradise.” The first 250 cards to the 270-space drive-in lot would receive free Hawaiian leis and free popcorn. The 35' by 25' screen was built to accommodate wide screen presentations as well as traditional films. Stage atop the screening booth allowed for live stage shows prior to showtime. Owner William G. Myers also had a bottle warming service for those bringing babies to screenings. The theater’s lot is still somewhat visible and its entrance is at 872 Ocean Highway / Route 13 two miles south of town. However, the drive-in was demolished though visible in the 1967 Historical Aerial satellite shot and the 1972 Topos.

It would appear that the base that was used for the marquee is still in use for the company currently on site.

It also appears that the projection booth/concession stand is still standing.
