Dixie Lee Drive-in continued to show mostly soft X-rated movies with an occasional hard X as a special late feature on into the early 1980’s.

It truly is amazing the screens you see from the past covered in moss in many rural towns like the Midway or Newport Drive-in. I have traveled that area even before the interstates as a kid and I remember Drive-ins almost carved into Mountains. Moonshine and drive-ins.

The Dixie-Lee was considered a Knoxville theatre.Sept 19 1967 showing on that outdoor screen was Barbara Steele in “THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK”. and second feature on the “FESTIVAL OF FEAR” was “THE AWFUL DR.ORLOF”. This was playing day and date with the RIVER BREEZE Drive-in.

The Dixie Lee Drive-In was in Knox County, Lenoir City is in Loudon County. The 37934 zip code is considered Knoxville. If the site had been just a few yards to the west, it would have been in Loudon County and the zip would have been 37772 which is a Lenoir City zip code.

The drive-in was right where the large white building is now in the center of this link:

HERE

1992 imaging shows it there.

I have seen mention of a Dixie Lee Drive-In Theatre in Lenoir City TN, but I am assuming it is this same drive-in, as it was actually located closer to the small town of Lenoir City that it was Knoxville
