Birdsong Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Birdsong Drive-In opened on July 6th, 2007. It is located south of Camden, TN. I believe it is the only open drive-in located in West Tennessee outside of the Summer 4 Drive-In in Memphis. I also think it is the first movie theatre in Benton County since the Midway Drive-In located in Camden closed in the 1970’s.

In May 2011, a second screen was added.

There is also the Broadway Drive-In, at 302 East Highway 70 Dickson Tn.Ph# 615-446-2786 showing 1 single movie and the Pink Cadilac Drive-In, on Highway 100 in Centerville Tn. Ph# 931-729-2386 showing double features. Hope this helps out!

Those two are both in Middle Tennessee, as is the Valley Drive In in Waverly, which is even closer to Camden. West Tennessee means west of the Tennessee River. When I was growing up in West Tennessee there was at least one drive-in in virtually every county, but all had closed except for the Summer 4 in Memphis. Drive-ins survived much better in Middle and East Tennessee.

Yeah, it’s cooler here in the hills of East Tennessee. Those cotton fields get steamy. Though, that’s sort of the whole point of a drive in, isn’t it? Actually, back on topic, what’s the story behind a brand new drive in? There’re aren’t many people expecting to make a living on any single screen anything, let alone a drive in.

The manager of this theater just announced on his Facebook page that a second screen is under construction and should be ready by the first of May 2011.

The Birdson Drive-In parks 300 between the two screens.
