The Beach Drive-In was opened on May 16, 1948 with Dick Powell in “Johnny O'Clock”. I saw “Snows of Kilimanjaro” there in 1952. They had a monthly dusk-to-dawn moviethon with six features for a number of years. In 1969, Hurricane Camille destroyed the screen tower and the Beach was closed for several months. In the early-1970’s, a second screen was added to make it a twin.
Gulf States Theatres operated the drive-in until the mid-1970’s. It was finally closed when the screens were destroyed by Hurricane Eleana on August 27, 1985. A Cajun RV and travel trailer camp now occupies the drive-in site. Its concession and booth building was retained and used for the camp office.
