Cinema-cation: Fog up the windows
BABY BOOMER ALERT: WAKE UP LITTLE SUSIE! Welcome to Americana 101
Remember the good old days of drive-in movies and diners? Well have we got a treat for you. Leave your remote control behind, your surround-sound-big-screen-HD-LED-TV's behind and park in a cow paddock and fog up the windows at the Mayberry Drive in theater. Why? Because it is fun, it is nostalgic, and your sweetie will love it! Sure the sound is not the same, the picture quality not the same, but you will be playing her heart strings, I guarantee it!
About 50 minutes drive from The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast up Route 122 near Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta is the Mayberry Drive in Theater with Diner.
The Mayberry Diner originated in Chesapeake, Virginia as Cosmo's Diner in 1998 and was owned and operated by Cosmo Walker. The new owners, Bob Craig and Kathy Gentry, purchased the 10 year old diner in June of 2008 and began the process of moving the diner to Moneta, Virginia. October 10, 2008 the Mayberry Drive-In and diner opened with a bang! The drive-in became an instant success with movies such as Indiana Jones and Madagascar 2 hit the big screen. Folks from near and far have come just to experience the nostalgia of the old time Drive-In theater and Diner.

Plan your cinema-cation now, plan to stay with us at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast and visit Mayberry Drive-in theater for a double feature which begins with a burger, onion rings and a rootbeer float, or share a banana split! (Go on, when was the last time you had a banana split?)
