Grand opening was August 22, 1950.
Above address is incorrect. Food Lion AKA Sunset Drive-in is @ 620 Market Street.
i went to this theater many times in my childhood, movies i remember seeing are smokey and the bandit, kentucky fried movie, the deep, star wars, car wash, sat night fever, jaws, and many more that i cannot remember because i was so young, i probably saw my first movie there around 1969 or 1970……beautiful memories!
During the summer of 1974, I worked in Tazewell. I remember this drive-in was open. One of the features was a film called “Preacher Man Meets Widow Woman.” I certainly couldn’t forget a classic like that!
since its closing in 1984 , later years . a major chain grocery store called food lion bought the property to build there store there. which has been there for around about 14 years. if anyone has any pictures or any other old info about this old drive-in please feel free to comment.
