A slightly closer address is 5153 Reidsville Rd, Walkertown, NC
Google Maps has updated their addresses. This one puts it right on the property.
Well it should have been sold years ago, as now it is a hopeless piece of property as soon as the State comes down and it is on the way now and widens US158 by it on it’s side. Will nearly take the property all the way to screen tower. Don’t know if State will buy it or just public domain it take just what they need of it.
Google Street View from November 2016 shows the site is still unused, the screen tower still there.
This is probably the easiest restoreable former drive-in in the state and it’s up for sale. Only catch, they’re asking $2 million for the property as they’d rather see it turn into a shopping center like the one now across the street :/
Just looking at the FB page and the DI opened has the Walkertown DI.

@ CSWalczak … The photos weren’t mislabel as belonging to the Galaxy Drive In Theatre in Ennis, Tx. Brent, who took the photos of the Bel Air Drive In & posted them on drive-ins.com, used to work at the Galaxy Drive In Theatre. He (Brent) was not stating those were photos of the Bel Air Drive In.. He worked at the Galaxy.. Today, He’s (Brent) no longer working at the Galaxy Drive In..
Held 180 cars.
More info and more photos are always welcome.

The link to its page at Drive-ins.com is http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/nctbela. There are additional pictures on the theater’s gallery page there, though they have been mislabeled as belonging to a Galaxy Drive-in in Ennis, Texas.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.
Here is a link to a Facebook fan page for the Bel-Air that has over 1,500 members. Walkertown misses their drive-in, which opened in 1955 and was shuttered in 2000.
Can anyone come up with an address or crossroad for this Drive-in? More info and photos are always welcome.
There is an entry in the Drive-ins.com database – http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/nctdr26 – for a theater simply called there “Drive-in” that was located on North Carolina Route 158 that accommodated 300 cars.
Must have been built in the sixties.
