JWmovies is right about the address. You can use US 17 Business & US 17 Business, Chocowinity, NC. The drive-in was about ¼ mile north on the east side of US 17 Business.
Today, it appears to be private property with only one of the entrance roads remaining from the drive-in.
The “Cho Co”, capacity 200 and owned by Floyd Cox, was in the first Theatre Catalog list for its 1948-49 edition. It morphed into the “Cho-Co” by 1955-56 but otherwise stayed the same.
The “Choco Cho”, capacity 200 and owned by Floyd Cox, was in the first International Motion Picture Almanac list for its 1951-52 edition. The IMPA eventually changed the listing to Choco, but otherwise kept it the same through 1963. The Choco was off the list for good by the 1966 edition.
This drive-in was located south of town on Hwy 17 (now US 17 Business). It was approximately ¼ mile north of what is now the intersection of US 17 & US 17 Business. Look for the buildings to the right. This was a very small theater.
