Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre is one of only 6 drive in theatres left in operation in North Carolina. Current owners, Mark and Jennifer Frank, purchased the theatre in December 2011 from Jim and Megan Kopp. The Franks are dedicated to providing quality family entertainment for a great value.
Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre is North Carolina's oldest operating drive-in theatre. This historic theatre was originally named: "The Moon-glo" which open for business on July 15, 1949. We are 1 of only 3 drive-in theatres still operating on Route 1. Drive-in movie theatre showing a double-feature Wednesday thru Sunday, including new releases and classics.
