Movies by Moonlight in Abingdon, VA
For a nostalgic date night or a family outing, the Moonlight Drive-in Movie Theater in Abingdon is just the ticket. Built in 1949, the Moonlight rode the wave of the drive-in craze through the 1950s and 60s, and has stood firm through decades of mutliplex theaters and at-home movie rentals.
Not only is Moonlight listed on the Virginia State Registry of Historical Landmarks, the Lee Highway site is one of only three drive-in theaters in the United States to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. The theater is seasonal – open in warmer months, closed during winter. Nightly double features are usually shown five nights a week, unless the weather is bad or not enough cars show up, according to owner William Booker. New titles are announced on Tuesdays.
