Opened in 1950. This drive-in was part of the Word Theater chain in 1963. Capacity was 350 cars. Tawasentha is an Indian word that can be found in Longfellow’s "Song of Hiawatha". The drive-in was closed in the mid-1980’s.

From the HSVMovies website:

Tawasentha Drive-In

No longer in operation. May have opened June 20, 1950 with the movie Model Wife, but that is uncertain due to lack of a grand opening ad. An article announcing the plans to opening the drive-in appeared in the April 11, 1950 Jackson County Sentinel. The drive-in was to have 350 car spaces. It was located 2.5 miles east of the Scottsboro city limits on US 72 (13 miles from Stevenson). Was run by Word Theatres (operated by R. D. Word).

US 72 could be used as a location until a more specific address is posted.
