One thing was certain, within a 40 mile range of Augusta, GA there were 24 drive-in theatres.
Quite a few were on the South Carolina side near the bomb plant in Jackson, S.C. I guess quite a few engineers took in a drive-in show after work.
Serving the east side of the bomb plant was the South Hill Drive-In in Barnwell, S.C. It parked 225 cars and was owned by Mrs. Sam Garber and stayed in operation until closing in 1979.
In fact it had Barnwell’s first run of the Issac Hayes movie "Truck Turner" and the second feature was "Fearless Fighters." Both were rated R.
By February 1977, it was running the movie on Bigfoot, "Sasquatch" which also opened at Augusta’s newest theatres Columbia 1 & 2. Couldn’t believe such drive-in product would be booked into a new theatre! It also opened at The Cinema in Aiken.
Of the three drive-ins in Barnwell the South Hill Drive-In was the last to close!
