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.

Here is a 1960 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of HistoricAerials.com.
