Approx. address for this drive-in is now 5300 Frontage Rd. Used to be i-75 and Kennedy. Now Grainger and other businesses.

It is interesting to know that after PACE, a Sam’s Club and Costco type store, demolished the South Expressway, you could walk over to the the end of the parking lot and still see part of the drive-in that had not yet been demolished.

Link to the Drive In ladder ad in the Atlanta paper on August 5, 1964. The blogger has also written up some of his memories of working at these places. Worth a look if you are interested in the drive in culture from 1970 – 1990.
