3420 Greensboro Avenue, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401

The above address will map to the location of the drive-in, which was demolished for the construction of 35th Street, which goes straight through what used to be the concession stand and the screen tower.

Here is a 1966 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS:

The map link above throws the location way off, (to 24th St; not Avenue) according to the print ad. Greensboro Ave is AKA 24th Ave., but I can’t find any mention of the Rosedale School mentioned in the ad. School has either been renamed, or demolished long ago. Anyone else know?

Dale Drive-In location seems to be all commercial buildings now, or the Sahama Village Cir. Somewhere near this intersection.
