Drive-In 54 commented about Mixon's Drive-In on Oct 29, 2013 at 2:50 pm

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…

Drive-In 54 commented about Iola 54 Drive-In on Oct 15, 2013 at 11:49 pm

So it should be listed as closed? Looking a aerial there is nothing there except a empty field.

Drive-In 54 commented about Parkview Drive-In on Oct 13, 2013 at 2:22 pm

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.

2430 U.S. 77, San Benito, TX 78586

I found aerial from 1962. Plus a picture of the marquee!

Drive-In 54 commented about Navarro Twin Drive-In on Oct 10, 2013 at 1:22 am

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.

Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 9, 2013 at 3:55 am

This should be the correct address (close enough) for the Brunswick Drive-In :

Old Portland Rd & Grant Rd, Brunswick, Maine 04011

Is this correct?

Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 9, 2013 at 3:08 am

So this aerial that mike uploaded is wrong also. This aerial is the Bowdoin Drive-In.

Drive-In 54 commented about Brunswick Drive-In on Oct 9, 2013 at 3:01 am

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?

Drive-In 54 commented about Whitesburg Drive-In on Oct 7, 2013 at 2:10 am

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.
