The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is now occupied by a shopping plaza.

The famous theatre painter Davis Cone painted this Drive-in and it is in his book. It parked 450 cars and it was owned by Publix Theatres in the late 50’s. I remember it because it was close to GEORGIA SQUARE MALL where i worked for GCC. At that time it was a Georgia Theatre playing typical second run movies like “BLAZING STEWARTRESS” and “NAUGHTY STEWARTRESS” soft core R rated features.
Time I got up to Athens the Drive-in was gone and a car lot was there. On at ATLANTA HIGHWAY heading towards HOTLANTA!
