Dreamland Drive-In

The Dreamland Drive-In was opened April 22, 1948. It was still open in 1980. Will miss this drive-in, one of the last in North Carolina. Operated as the Dreamland Flea Market before being torn down and replaced with retail stores.

Facebook post with a collage of 1959 theatre print ads, amongst which are the Dreamland and one called West Ashville Auto Theatre, which does not yet have a CT page.
