I think I have found it @ 2130 US Hwy 278 Highway, Gadsden, AL 35903. On Drive-ins.com there is a opening day ad for it. Built in 1951 and opened in 1952. Closed in 1952. Anymore information would be great.

Well said Chuck!! I just uploaded a movie ad for the Grove DI. It is listed on Attallia Blvd. Name change on the street? Goodson I see wrote an article about the drive-in theatres in Gadsden in the local paper. Could you write new overviews/ add current pictures/add the theatres in Gadsden that are missing and submit them, so Ken can change them?

Over the years, address numbers get changed, roads get renamed, and property gets bought and split up and renumbered. Because a movie ad, city directory, phone book says it is at a certain address with XXXX number in 1955. Then fast forward to 2013. It might be different. I have friend that worked in the street dept. back in the day and I asked him about that. In the 1950-1960’s, the cities and county’s would change the street names and numbers has the need arises!

It amazing to me that it was only open for a short period of time. With all the money that was invested into it. You would think that it would have stayed open at least two years. Unless the owners ran out money and lost it.

I uploaded the correct aerial. The other one is for the Vista DI. It needs to be removed.

I think there is some confusion between the Sunset and Elk Drive-Ins here.

Drive-In 54 commented about Parkview Drive-In on Feb 12, 2013 at 1:51 pm

When I researched this DI it is listed as 1526 Parkview. But, if you look at the maps it is located at 1206 Alabama St… Parkview is Side Street that runs parallel north of Alabama St. I was thinking the street name was changed years ago. I called the St Joe City street deptment about the addresses. I talked to a gentleman that used to go to the drive-in in the late 1950’s. He said the Parkview address might have been a mailing address? Maybe it is a misprint on advertising and nobody bother to change it. He said 1206 Alabama is the correct address for the drive-in. Also, he said there is other address’s in St. Joe that are off also like that.
