I found Waycross Drive-In ads for May 1950. Also found ads in 1949-50 for a Skyline Drive-In in Waycross.

NYozoner commented about Waycross Drive-In on Feb 8, 2011 at 3:50 pm

@Mike Rivest: If you look closely at the entire page, there is a section to the left of the page which details the “re-opening program” for the Waycross Drive-In. This was the season opening ad, and not a grand opening. It’s not always easy to tell the difference, but I’ll bet they were open at least as early as 1952.

NYozoner commented about Martin Drive-In on Feb 8, 2011 at 6:14 am

Another three headed monster puzzle. I found aerial photos for three different drive-ins located in Valdosta.

273 Bemiss Rd, Valdosta, GA 31605

N Ashley St & Oak Street Extension, Valdosta, GA 31602

N Forrest St & Myrtle St, Valdosta, GA 31601

Have names for two of them, Skyway Drive-In (N Ashley) and Martin Drive-in (Bemiss Rd) but no name for the N Forrest St location.

Does anyone have a drive-in listing for Valdosta which isn’t on CT yet?
