By Robert Boyer, Times-News, Burlington, N.C. Jul. 13--Nickelodeons. Movie houses. Picture shows. Theaters. Cinemas. Whatever you call them, their golden age in Alamance County probably ran from the late-1940s to the late-1950s. During that time, Burlington boasted at least four downtown theaters and two driveins. The Bon-Air, a third drive-in, was just a mile outside town on Ossipee Road. Graham had two cinemas, the Alco and the Graham Theatre. But thanks in large measure to...
