Bordeaux Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Bordeaux Drive-In was located on Clarksville Highway (Highway 41A) in the North Nashville neighborhood of Bordeaux. It was located on the right side of the highway as you were driving from Nashville towards Clarksville.

The Bordeaux Drive-In opened July 26, 1951. By 1955 it was operated by the Crescent Amusement Co. It was taken over by the Martin Theatres chain in 1965. It was closed in the late-1960’s or early-1970’s. The sign out front survived for several years after all other traces of the drive in were gone, but it is now also gone.

I believe I sent a photo to Robin of this drive-in, but I could be wrong, I do know that it was located in North Nashville.

Was located at 3930 Clarksville Pike, Nashville, TN 37220 United States.


The green, roundish clump of trees in the field directly behind the store is where the screen stood, facing NorthWest. Verified in 1992 Google Earth view.

I have been in here many times, in fact I once roomed with the manager and his wife, William A and Martha McPherson, and I used to go up to his office in the concessions/projection building and talk to him. Mr Mack had formerly managed the Capitol on 2nd Avenue South. Wonderful people. My wife and I went by their graves in Spring Hill just this past Wednesday to pay our respects.

Hey, TLSLOEWS, I don’t know who this Robin person is that has never posted your photos … but I’d sure love to see all these marquee photos you talk about. The new format of Cinema Treasures makes it very simple to upload photos. I’m also on Facebook in all the Nashville nostalgia groups. Love to see what you have.
