HATTIESBURG, MS — After extensive damage due to Hurricane Katrina, the future of the Beverly Drive-In is unclear.

The owners of the 58-year-old Beverly Drive-In are undecided on its fate after Hurricane Katrina abruptly put an end to one of the Pine Belt’s most recognized landmarks.

“One of my current jobs for this is to get it appraised or to see how much the land is worth if it was demolished,” said Suzette Hargroder of Hattiesburg, who owns the theater with her sister, Beverly Cutrer of Louisiana. “We’re not willing to put any money into it. It doesn’t make financial sense.”

This theater should be rebuilt. It’s needed now more than ever.
