This drive-in was open from 1968 to 1973. Only the concession stand remains. Former owner Cecil Quarles operates the still thriving Piedmont Drive-In about forty miles from Attalla.

It opened in July 1968 as a general release theater. Its first show was “The Texican,” and a few weeks later it showed the Don Knotts comedy “The Shakiest Gun in the West.” The blue fare (X-rated) came later and led to a falling out between Cecil Quarles and his partner. It didn’t help that the screen could apparently be seen from Highway 77.
