Waynesboro Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

It seemed like almost any small town had at least a downtown theatre. Towns such as Waynesboro had a drive-in also. The Waynesboro Drive-In was listed in the 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook.

The Waynesboro Drive-in was located going out of town heading towards Statesboro, Georgia. Several times going hunting with my dad we would pass the drive-in back in the late-1960’s, and it had long been closed up!

By drive-in standards it was a small lot parking only 100 cars. It was owned by L. Bailey. The screen was falling apart when I saw it in the late-1960’s, maybe early-1970’s.

Having no reason to go to Waynesboro it wasn’t until the late-1980’s when I drove by that old drive-in again. The block building that housed the booth and a small snack bar was still standing but the roof was long gone.

I walked the deep grass looking for maybe an old speaker and watching for rattlesnakes!

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.
