Bright Leaf Drive-in Theater

Mount Airy, North Carolina

I had several indications online that this theater was still operating, and it made sense as the first stop of the Southern Loop of the American Drive-in Theater project. But sadly it closed a couple of years ago. At the end of a twelve-hour drive, at least the late afternoon light was nice and I made a few captures. The buildings seem to be in good shape, so a revival is possible, and this is a tourist area. The address is Andy Griffith Parkway, and it's surrounded by all sorts of Mayberry tourist kitsch.
