Previously operated by: Dixie Drive-In Theatres
Previous Names: Parking Palace
The Parking Palace was opened in July 1936 and was the first drive-in theatre in Georgia. It was at the intersection of Stewart Avenue (now Metropolitan Parkway) and Cleveland Avenue. It was closed in 1942 due to wartime conditions. It refurbished and reopened as the Stewart Drive-In on May 25, 1949 with Rod Cameron in “Strike it Rich”. It was the sister theater to the Piedmont Drive-In. They both closed in the late-1960’s and were replaced with a K-Mart-like store called Arlans which did not last very long. The Arlans building is still standing and is anchored by a Kroger Citi Center.
Before it closed in 1967, you could see the huge screen as you drove along I-85.
