Yep, It parked 518 cars and in 1956 it was owned by S.J. Workman.

After I would pass the VIKING DRIVE-in In Anderson S.C. in about 40 minutes i would pass the WHITE HORSE DRIVE-in on my way to East Tennessee with my family. You could see the Viking Screen clearly{until they ran X rated product.} THE White Horse was on a very busy four lane highway and pretty much kept to And Greenville PG product,since I am sure they had no lights to blank the screen,and it wasn’t out in the sticks like the VIKING DRIVE-IN in Anderson,S.C.{On CT} And of South Carolina cities Greenville would be the most Conservative and would not put up with a Drive-in in that location showing SMUT. I remember “THE TOY” playing there going down the road.

MORE ON THE WHITE HORSE DRIVE-In. I thought at one time it was a Plitt Theatre,but after talking with my Cousin,Ray Rogers.He stated it was run by EXHIBITORS SERVICE COMPANY.Which in the late 50’s operated out of Jacksonville,Fla. Exhibitors Service Company ran the book keeping of Ray’s Theatres in HENDERSONVILLE,N.C. He said Frank Jones was the main booker and stayed there until the Litchfield Company hired him.
I drove by one time going home. It was closed for good.I snapped a couple of pictures. Under the screen there was a nice apartment for the Manager to live in.

I’m working at a business that just opened up at the site of the old White Horse drive-in. We would really like to put some photos up in our showroom. Does anyone have any or know where I might find some?

Thanks much!
