The Fox Drive-In in Aiken was located about 20 miles from Augusta. It was opened July 1, 1952, and served this horse loving town well into the 1970’s as commercial real estate started to creep out towards the bomb plant.
Aiken also had the Park Drive-In, the Aiken Drive-In and the Tower Drive-In. The Fox Drive-In is the only one I remember seeing since I lived in Georgia and we wouldn’t be driving to Aiken for a movie.
The Fox Drive-In parked 600 cars and was initially owned by Consolidated Theatres, and finally by Stewart & Everett. It was a large drive-in.
In 1969 the Fox Drive-In had these two movies, "Mad Doctor of Blood Island" and "Blood Demon" which were billed as, "the horror shows that have everything!" In September of 1960 the Fox Drive-In was playing "Cash McCall" and "Johnny Belinda". The Fox Drive-In was closed February 2, 1974.
Today a large shopping center is there. What else is new. However, well into the 1980’s while the screen was long gone, the concession/booth sat in search of a movie screen. And now its gone since another shopping center took that spot.
