Opened December 19, 1968 with Sidney Poitier in “For Love of Ivy” & Alex Cord in “A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die!” in theatre 1 and Walter Matthau in “The Secret Life of an American Wife” & James Garner in “How Sweet It Is” in theatre 2. The Marbro Twin Drive-In was located in the Austell section of Marietta, GA. The two-screener was at that point “out-in-the-country”, away from airport noise and city lights and a great place for movies. Always double-features a first run movie would usually be followed by by a second film that would be at least five years old.
The two screens sat facing each other about a quarter-mile apart with the snack bar/projection booth seated directly in the middle. The dual-purpose two-story building was larger than usual and fired movies out both directions from up on top. As a result the snack bar was deluxe and had a full menu including pizza, cheeseburgers, and corndogs.
