@Mike: Regarding the marquee title layout, the explanation is pure laziness and a void in professionalism. They switched films from one screen to another, and instead of rearranging the titles on the marquee, they just rearranged the screen numbers. Nauseating, but typical of a large chain (U/A) which didn’t care enough to provide experienced management or competent supervision.

N Park St & Hughes Dr, Carrollton, GA 30117

Old Bremen Rd intersects N Park St in twice, causing the mapping to be thrown off. The address in this post will map accurately. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.

@Chuck: Earth Explorer has quality aerial imagery available for 1955 and 1972. Both those years showed the drive-in as being on what is now N Park St & Old Bremen Rd.

50 years ago that might have meant 471 Linda Lane. Who knows?

Neither of those years (1955 and 1972) showed any other drive-ins, or residual hints of previous drive-in activity.

The drive-in was already long gone when the 1968 image was captured, but the faded parking ramps are still visible on the east side of Morris Road where the drive-in used to be.

NYozoner commented about M and T Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 11:19 am

My previous post regarding the M& T Drive-In is not correct, that post refers to the address of another Canton drive-in, Howell’s Drive-In.

I was able to locate the second drive-in for Canton, the M & T Drive-In, to the east of town, located at:

Canton Hwy & Keith Dr, Canton, GA 30114

NYozoner commented about Buford Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 8:16 am

Despite the availability of quality 1960 aerial imagery for Buford on HistoricAerials.com, I was unable to locate anything resembling a drive-in on the road mentioned in the heading, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

As a matter of fact, that road did not even exist in 1960, so I have to question the validity of that information. It would not come as a shock to learn that it originated from Drive-ins.com, which contains the identical information as what is posted here.

On the bright side, I did locate a drive-in about 3.5 miles southwest of Buford, on Buford-Cumming Hwy.

5648 Cumming Hwy NE, Buford, GA 30518

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.
