Warner Park Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Warner Park Drive-In was opened June 2, 1956 by the Condra Amusement Co. It was designed by R.M. Condra Engineers, and had a capacity for 570 cars. Due to the lay of the land, the outer ramps had terraces.

I believe closed some time in the 1960’s.

The Warner Park Drive in operated into the early 70’s if memory serves me correctly. The land was cleared and a big gym was built there, but I don’t know what is there now. Very steep lot it was built on. Other drive ins in Nashville at the time, Bel Aire, Colonial, Montague, Lebanon Rd, Skyway, Crescent and maybe another one or two I can’t remember. There were actually two Colonials. The original was at the intersection of Old Hickory Blvd and Gallatin Rd, and was a single screen. The second was a twin closer towards Hendersonville.
