Tower Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Tower Drive-In in Aiken was a location that didn’t last long. Did these owners think Aiken could support so many screens? Granted, the bomb plant was in full swing, but so many drive-ins!

The Tower Drive-In was located on Whiskey Road almost to New Ellenton, S.C. It was one of the few drive-ins in the Augusta area that I never went to!

It was a pretty good size lot parking 350 cars and was owned in 1956 by Consolidated Theatres. Consolidated was located in Charlotte.

Bill was right while the Bomb plant was in full swing; Drive ins sprang up everywhere in Aiken County.Only to have a short life span.

Oak Ridge,Tenn. probably had the same expansion of screens in the 50’s.Both Cities built the A-Bomb.

This one was just in from the southwest corner of Whiskey and Pine Log Roads. It’s been obliterated by modern retail.
