North Carolina used to have a large number of drive-in theatres. Today, few remain. Jeter describes typical drive-in theatres. Usually, drive-ins were located on large flat fields. Some, such as the Carolina Pines were different. This theater, owned by H. A. Carlton, had terraced parking that enabled each row of parked cars to be higher than the row in front. Moviegoers could see a movie for twenty-five cents a person and snacks were cheap.
