Wait Don’t do it!If you can’t get the facts right it ain’t worth getting “called on the carpet” for a mistake and believe me if some guys and catch a small mistake i made on a few Augusta theatres,just think you being in a larger city they will eat you alive. I am a Scorpio.{not that i give it any creedence]

You are going to have to do what Nick as done and me to,to a lesser extent and start writing up a history on your city’s Drive-ins if they aren’t already on CT.

Maybe because we had more real theatres,just kidding.Yes Mike Crescent Amusement Company built many of them including the CRESCENT or LOEWS CRESCENT as I know it,their office was in the Crescent bulding they built many theatres in Nashville and other places,and by the way all of these drive-ins are long gone.At one time they owned most the theatres in Tennessee,wish I had more info on them.

Speaking Of Drive-ins do You have any stories on these fine NASHVILLE,Tenn Drive-ins.

1.Bel-Air Drive-in
2.Bordeaux Drive-In
3.Colonial
4.Crescent
5.Sky-Way
6. Drive-in
It seems odd that Augusta,much smaller had more Drive-ins than Nash
