This was among Baton Rouge’s six drive-in screens (for one brief moment in 1970, all existed in operation, with a twin just built and one on its way out for a new expressway addition.) The Rebel was one of two that were in the middle of town. Its operation ended in early 1973 and the site is now occupied by a (closed) shopping center, several fast food outlets and a Mexican restaurant and bar.
