The Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre Seeking New Ownership

Message from Mr. Kopp – As owners of The Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre, we are sorry to announce that we have decided to put the theatre up for sale. The last two years we have been running two theatres (one in VA and Raleigh Road–we are wearing ourselves out emotionally and physically) and have not spent the time we feel is necessary to keep Raleigh Road viable. Therefore, we are hoping to find someone in the community that is interested in keeping NC’s oldest operating drive-in theatre alive.  The theate is on leased land with very reasonable rent. The theatre has seen substantial growth over the last five years of our ownership, with 85% of the business coming from the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill & Wakeforest).  As its’ current owners, we wish to sell the business to someone that seeks to keep the theatre growing and will bring it into the digital age, as we had originally planned to do.. As part of the selling price, we will provide consultation and training (as needed) to new owners.  If there is someone in the community that would like to talk to us about the possibility of ownership, please email me at:
