NYozoner commented about Marietta Drive-in on Feb 6, 2011 at 4:15 am

I found three drive-ins on HistoricAerials.com in the Marietta/Fair Oaks area.

Atlanta Rd SE & Coggins Dr S E, Smyrna, GA 30080, this drive-in was south of the airport.

Cobb Pkwy SE & Polytechnic Ln, Marietta, GA 30060, this drive-in is now a parking lot used by Southern Polytechnic State University.

1425 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30062, this drive-in is now a shopping plaza.

It’s hard to put a name to these drive-ins without being from the area of having access to newspaper ads. Maybe one of you guys down in the Atlanta area can come up with some names.

Could this have been known locally as the Southside Drive-In?

I found seven drive-ins for Macon using 1954 aerial photos. haven’t figured out which ones went by which names yet for four out of the seven. Will have to make a few calls to local history people to help sort it out.

NYozoner commented about White Horse Pike Drive-In on Feb 4, 2011 at 11:06 pm

This was a very mysterious and short-lived drive-in.

Here is a 1963 aerial photo of the location, courtesy of HistoricAerials.com.

You will notice the drive-in is not there in 1963, and by switching over to the 1970 aerial imagery, the location has already been developed into a shopping center.

Here is a 1965 aerial photo of the same location, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS, where you can now view the drive-in. It appears this drive-in opened sometime between 1963 and 1965, and was demolished sometime before 1970.

NYozoner commented about Starry Night Drive-In on Feb 3, 2011 at 8:29 pm

The official website link does not work. I don’t think this “drive-in” is operating any longer, if that is what you choose to call it. I question if this qualifies as a drive-in, since there were no permanent structures involved. The screen was a bed sheet stretched out between two poles. At best it was a temporary outdoor lawn movie. Calling this a drive-in theatre is an insult to real drive-ins.

NYozoner commented about South Expressway Drive-In 1 & 2 on Feb 3, 2011 at 7:43 pm

The title of this listing should be “South Expressway Drive-In.” At the very least, the words “drive-in” should be mentioned in the title.

Here is a 1960 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of HistoricAerials.com.

This listing should be combined with the listing for the Forest Park Drive-In, as these were the same drive-in at the same location.

@ Mike: Couple of suggestions. I bet the county or town historian would love to get their hands on your photos, and would gladly scan them for you, and let you keep the photos if you want, while giving you digital copies of their scans on a dvd.

Scanner/copiers are also pretty inexpensive if you’d like to purchase your own digital scanner.
