In 1965 the Amite Drive-in is listed only. The only good way you can figure it out. Is go the location/area and start asking/researching them. Unless you know somebody that went to them from back in the day!! The theatre books are good “guides” but…
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.
There was a South Drive-In that needs to added to CT also.
More information herefrom NY Drive-Ins
Thanks for the correction..there is no listing for the Duke City Drive-In on CT. It should be added.
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.
I believe this is the address:
2430 U.S. 77, San Benito, TX 78586
I found aerial from 1962. Plus a picture of the marquee!
If I’m wrong let me know!!
This the correct address: 2120 E Carson St, Long Beach, CA 90807
More information here from NY Drive-Ins
The second screen information is listed from drive-ins.com. Information there is dubious at times. That might be wrong. I’m looking at the aerials also.
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.
So we have two drive-ins on CT with the same address.
The Brunswick and Bowdoin are both listed at 15 Tibbett’s Drive.
So is the Bowdoin Drive-In the correct address: 15 Tibbett’s Drive, East Brunswick?
The Brunswick Drive-In unknown at this time?
Here is the marquee
It was listed in 1956 Yearbook of Motion Pictures. But that could be wrong also.
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.
