I remember going there as a child in the 60’s. Hard to imagine it now but there was field partially surrounding the drive-in. Can’t remember for sure, but it was corn or cotton.

I do remember going by the FOX DRIVE IN as a child when my parents drove to Aiken on Whiskey Road. I remember a pretty large screen at least for a 9 year old. It was running a movie,but i can’t remember.
