All Peninsula
Drive-Ins

 
The mention of 'drive-ins' in your latest newsletter caused me to remember that there were two distinctly different kinds
of drive-ins on the Peninsula 'way back when. The park-n-whatever movie theatres - and the meet, eat and greet kind.
In the 50's, there were three (now all long gone) that I can recall that were popular with the high school set: Monty's
(4309 Virginia Avenue), the B. & M. Drive-in (3716 Kecoughtan Road) and the W&S (across from the old entrance
to Huntington Park). Considered the 'territory of NNHS, HHS and WHS, respectively....

I found all three - thank you - and others listed on your page entitled "Our Old Stomping Grounds".
May I suggest you cross-reference them to the drive-in page?

Thanks, Bill!  That's an excellent suggestion, and one that surely would never have occurred to me.
