The Tower Drive-In is listed in the 1952 edition of Theatre Catalog with 200 car capacity operated by Billy King. The Aitkin Drive-In is also listed but no mention of a Fox Drive-In.

In the 1953-1954 edition of Theatre Catalog the Tower Drive-In (now 400 cars( and the Fox Drive-In (600 cars) are listed as being operated by Consolidated Theatre out of Charlotte, NC.

Both the Fox Drive-In and the Tower Drive-In are indicated at the same location on CT, Whiskey Road at Pine Log Rd.

Were these the same drive-in, or were they individual drive-ins at different locations? Can any locals clear this up?

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

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.
