The Showtown Drive-In opened on October 26, 1972, featuring on screen 1, the 1967 comedy-drama “The Graduate” with Dustin Hoffman, Ann Bancroft and Katherine Ross". Screen 2 delighted patrons with the 1972 drama “Kansas City Bomber” with Raquel Welch, Kevin McCarthy and Helena Kallianiotes. The Showtown Drive-In was opened by T.G. Solomon’s Gulf States Theatres. It was designed to be a triple screen drive-in theatre, but was only set up to be a twin-screen at the opening. A third screen tower was planned but it was never installed. If you look at the aerial view, you can see where it was going to be located at. Just with the two screen towers, the Showtown Drive-In could park a total of 700 cars.
It was operated by Cobb Theatres at the end, and closed in 1979. It is now used as soccer fields.
