New in town: Charlotte’s Drive-In
Posted on 9 May 2010 by Melissa Fortune
From @Kyphi, I received a tweet this weekend:
“…there’s a drive in movie on Tyvola & S.tryon…they’re currently showing Ironman2!!! When did that open???”
After a quick phone call I got the details and headed out.
Following are a few pics but lighting was not the best. I will definitely follow up in the daylight but in the spirit of sharing, here’s the deets:
Name: Charlottes Drive In
Days/Hours: Thurs — Sun 7pm — 1am
1st show — Iron Man 2
2nd show — How To Train Your Dragon
Cost: Adults $7, Children: $5
Concessions: Yes, $
I came to the second show so I didn’t get there until 11:15pm. Yesterday (5÷8÷10) was day two of their opening; per Jason they were still working out a few kinks. I didn’t see any kinks. There is a consession stand, decently stocked. The sound is picked up on 88.1 FM and sounded clear through car speaker. The screen was large and clear, looked standard movie size. The ‘parking’ was to be expected for a drive in; located on the corner of Tyvola & South Tryon, in grass lot in front Morning Storage building. I saw several CMPD officers on duty.
The only suggestion I have is arrive early once awareness builds. I predict heavy summer traffic.
