Opened on Highway 42 in 1947 on Carolina Beach Road, near Monkey Junction. The Carolina Beach Road Drive-In was operated by W.E. Thrush and had a capacity for 200-caes. By 1953 it had been expanded to hold 300-cars, still operated by W.E. Thrush. It was later renamed Sea Cliff Drive-In.

The drive-in sat further east near Monkey Junction. The address is 5309 Carolina Beach Rd Ste 4, Wilmington, NC.

The drive-in was operational in a 1956 aerial photo. But the 1969 aerial photo shows it was demolished. The land remained empty until at least 1983.

Today, a Dollar Tree and Lowe’s Foods of Carolina Beach sits on the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.
