Poinsett Drive-In

The Poinsett Drive-In was listed as being located in Marked Tree in 1955, when it was operated by J.E. Singleton. It was still open in the 1960’s.

It was listed in Marked Tree in the 1963 IMPA. I don’t have any other information on the city.

It could be a mistake. The almanacs are not 100% accurate.

Please update address to: Overpass Rd Trumann, AR 72472

The drive-in used to be exactly where the Cottonwood Road overpass goes over US 63.

I found this quote in an article titled “Fifty Years Ago: Local Trumann business community was going strong” from the Poinsett County Democrat Tribune on August 6, 2007.

“At Payneway, then called Harrisburg Corner, the Poinsett Drive-In re-opened for business”

That’s exactly where the drive-in was, although from the 1973 aerial photo I viewed, it looks like it had seen better days.
