Looks like the drive-in site is now occupied by a soccer field. The name of the new road that leads to the former drive-in site is:

Atlanta Silverbacks Way, Chamblee, GA 30340

NYozoner commented about M and T Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 7:19 pm

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 4:16 pm

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.

NYozoner commented about Prince Avenue Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 9:40 am

There probably are people in Athens with pictures, they just don’t know what to do with them or how to get them into the right hands.

One way to accomplish that is to contact the local paper, talk to a reporter and explain that you are researching local drive-ins for a book, talk about the names and locations of the drive-ins, and explain that you need their help in locating people who might have photos.

There’s no guarantees that they will put a story in, but more often than not they will, and you have a pretty good shot of coming up with some photos.

Another avenue is the local historical society, although those are very hit and miss since most historians were more interested in old school houses, downtown theatres, and churches, than they were in drive-in theares.

NYozoner commented about Clover-Leaf Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 8:32 am

Found the Cloverleaf, on Atomic Rd ½ mile south of US 1. The drive-in is on the west side of Atomic Rd.

Difficult to get an exact address, since there is no nearby intersection or an existing business to pull road numbers from.

Atomic Rd ½ mile south of US 1, North Augusta, SC 29842 is the best address I can provide at this time.

Here is a 1964 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

NYozoner commented about Joy's Outdoor Twin on Feb 2, 2011 at 6:57 am

Eddie Murphy double feature on screen one, and James bond double feature on screen two.

One of my person favorite “inside joke” double features was “Great Balls of Fire” the Jerry Lee Lewis Movie, showing with “Cousins.”

NYozoner commented about Alps Drive-In on Feb 2, 2011 at 6:53 am

Tell me about it. It’s most frustrating for me when I read a post from someone on here stating “I visited the site today and took pictures…” but then they don’t leave any further information about the address, such as what part of town it was in, what side of the street, nearby intersections, nearby existing businesses.

The historic aerial photos can very easily document these locations, very quickly, if you know roughly where to look and during what years.

I’m just taking the clues you guys put on here, and turning them into detailed addresses which can be used with mapping programs such as Google Earth. I feel it’s also valuable to provide an aerial photo image to verify the address. It is good to get these places documented before they fall completely out of memory, as many locations already have.
