It was actually called the Albemarle Rd Drive-in even though Albemarle Rd was about a mile or so away.

Until recently, 2009, the perimeter aluminum fence still stood next to the church.

This is the first place I ever saw the Beatles in a short film just before they made it big. I was 7 or 8.

This was before the film “A Summer Place”

Man, i would ave loved to be that close to a Drive-in. Have a friend here in Augusta and the WEIS DRIVE-In supplied entertainment for a whole row of houses. During the summer, families would set up yard chairs and enjoy the movies and he said for the most part you could hear fine.

Now a large church stands on the land where the Big A used to be.
