Franklin Drive-In

Most people don’t know about this one. It IS NOT the same as the Franklin Drive-In that is south of town, which is more technically the 31W Drive-In. This is actually in town and suprisingly still standing. It is on a rural road, and not a very good location. However it has got to be the drive-in that was in the worst shape I’ve ever seen.

It is not recognizable, but is still crumbling away, its block screen and projction booth, hidden in the brush. I would love to hear any information about this, on my quest to make known the lesser known southern Kentucky theaters.

Russellville Rd, .25 mile west of Allen Rd
Franklin, KY 42134

The above address will map to the correct location of the drive-in, which is on the north side of Russllville Rd, and is clearly visible on Google Earth using historical imagery.

A closer address (at least for Google) is 1499 Russellville Rd, Franklin, KY.

Today, there is nothing left save for the fading outline, ramps, and remnants of the screen foundation, entrance and exit roads.
