I don't remember Arnott's, but here's the easiest one: Hams Drive-In. What was the name of the drive-in theater near where the Commons is now?

Besides, you don't have to be old to know your local history.

Arnott's was on Main Street between A.J. Bank and First Presbyterian Church, where the Chapel is now. Nite Auto was the drive-in where the Commons is now.

Ashville highway just as you are leaving town. It is either where a new church or where Rose hill funeral home is. Had sex there many times. We never went there to see the movie.
