Signs, Signs & A Good Fence in Christiansburg

click on photos to enlarge

We were sitting in our car at Dude's Drive-In eating our lunch (I've shown you Dude's HERE ) and Braden asks "Is there a Macy's up there?"
Ha, the big red star is so Macy's!
Why no, it's a drive-in!
The Starlite is in Christiansburg, just up the road from Dude's Drive-In...they have been showing movies since 1953!
For more info you can check out their website HERE

Linking with Signs, Signs and Good Fences (if you squint you can find some fencing in there!)

  2. Relics of another time for most places today. We still have 2 left in the area. One runs in summer. The other is under repair and hopes to return. Real estate is brings the big $$$$ though.

  5. We still have a drive-in theatre here...but for how long? A housing development is going in near to the theatre and even though they'll know it was there BEFORE they moved in they will be sure to complain AFTER.

  6. We had a Starlight drive-in in Illinois when I was a kid. I don't think it is operation anymore.

  11. Great sign! I few years ago, a couple started up a drive-in movie theater in our area. There hadn't been one in operation for years. The kids LOVE it! :)

  12. Both places are awesome. First dinner at Dude's then the movies! Brings back my childhood days. That's how we spent many a Friday nights!

  14. Fun scenes. That's funny about the red star. I still call Macy's the Bon Marche since Macy's bought them out here in Seattle. I had so many fun times at the Drive-In theater growing up. I did squint and I did see some fences!

  15. You don't see many Drive-In's any more (we have one just over the state line in OR here). They are so nostalgic. I like the cheery red/blue color combo of the fencing here.

  16. That red star is huge. I bet no one misses it.

  17. Wow! So now Virginia has our Hulls and your Starlite, very cool! I would have thought Macys too, LOVE them! We have to go to short Pump to find one. I love your first picture of the Starlite marquee! I like that blue house, too. Does it belong to the theater?

  19. A drive-in! It's been so long since I've even thought of one. We went to a few back in the days when my dad had a 1964 Dodge Dart.

  20. Love that old sigh! Very colorful post, even the fence!

  21. Wow, that drive-in certainly brings back some memories for me. When I was a kid, my parents used to put us in the back of our station wagon in our pajamas and take us to the drive-in movies. We were always asleep by the time the movie was over!

  22. Wow. A drive in still in operation from long ago. You don't see that often.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We have a drive in right down the country road. They are an experience, for sure.

  24. I think they need to bring them back. I love their sign.

  26. How cool is that. We had a starlight drive in too but it closed.

    Thanks for sharing yours.

  27. Neat! There's a drive-in not too far from us in Stephen's City (VA).

  28. I remember packing the kids in the car and taking them to the drive-in when my husband was doing shift work. Kept them quiet and me entertained at the same time. Thanks for the memory.

  29. Now that must have been a blast from the past?!

  30. That drive-in sign is pretty special, Tanya. As is the big red star.
