"I love the information you are gathering on drive-in theaters. Great memories from my youth. I grew up in Crozet on property adjoining the old Crozet Drive-In and attended many times. I remember all the family members taking a lawn chair and sitting around a speaker. I believe it was open until the mid-60ís as I have vivid memories and was born in 1955. Admission was $.25 walking and $.35 per person in a car or $1.25 for a carful. I remember the prices from riding my bike past the admission sign for years after it was closed. I will try to research and get a more definitive closing date and any other interesting info I can find. Thanks for the website." -- Danny Via
