Pitts Drive-In
VA 3 north of Kilmarnock, Va.
capacity: 225 cars
years of operation: 1952-66 or 67
currently: semi-abandoned

As of September 1997, the former drive-in lot occupied the back lots of a Chevrolet dealership and Kilmarnock Motor Sales, a farm-equipment retailer. The still-standing snack bar/projection building, which had served as a video arcade for a period, was used to store junk. The screen and other structures were long gone.
