That information came from Yearbook of Motion Pictures – 1956
koosmal..have pictures or ads to share?
According my listing in 1956 there was Mixon’s and Amite Drive-ins.
More information herefrom NY Drive-Ins
I believe they are open now per there FB page.
I checked there website and it does not list a street address. I checked on Facebook and PM a message asking.
Here is more information from NY drive-ins
Here is the link
So it should be listed as closed? Looking a aerial there is nothing there except a empty field.
Billy Wright…do you have pictures to share?
Tp…..you are correct about the address. It was 1526 Parkwood. But to use the goggle maps feature of CT to map to the correct location we need to use the current address of the property.
This the correct address: 2120 E Carson St, Long Beach, CA 90807
More information here from NY Drive-Ins
Do you guys have any pictures to share?
This should be the correct address (close enough) for the
Brunswick Drive-In :
Old Portland Rd & Grant Rd, Brunswick, Maine 04011
Is this correct?
So this aerial that mike uploaded is wrong also. This aerial is the Bowdoin Drive-In.
Here is the marquee
Little bit of history from Craig E. Parsons.
The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater, Huntsville’s first drive-in, was opened June 16, 1949. This theater is located one-half mile south of Huntsville on Whitesburg Drive and is owned and operated by Acme Investments, Incorporated, whose stockholders are Walton Fleming, president; Martha Fleming, vice-president; and Charles A. Crute, secretary-treasurer. In keeping with company policy, the latest type of equipment is maintained. The screen size was increased in 1954 to 100 x 40 feet to accommodate both wide-screen and Cinemascope attractions. Just prior to that time, playground equipment was installed in front of the screen and is available free of charge to patrons. The Whitesburg Drive-In Theater has a modern, fully-equipped Snack Bar. Mr. Robert Ross, who manages the Theater, is also manager of the Snack Bar. The screen burned down some time during May of 1980. All of the playground equipment was now gone and the lot had been bulldozed over.
Kelly are you from the area?
I think this is it. It is on TWP 36 across from the cemetery. Looks like it was a pretty good size. 400 car maybe.
The address is: 5338 Health Camp Rd Cortland, NY 13077

This is the only movie ad I could find from the Booker Park Drive-In. I guess it was a “colored” theatre only. I checked the address and could not find any remains in a 1962 aerial. It must not have been open very long.
I believe it is the Wheeler Drive-In..
I have Wheeler Drive-In listed in 1965 located in Elgin, AL.Is that one?
