The Varia Drive-In was opened prior to 1955 when it was operated by T.G. Solomon. He also operated three other dive-in’s in Jackson, MS; the 51 Drive-In, the Highway 80 Drive-In and the Skyvue Drive-In.

The Varia Drive-In was still operating in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963 and closed sometime in the 1970’s. It was operated by Gulf States Theatres from 1963 until 1975.

What was cool about passing the Varia Drive-In was the Alamo Motel next to it and the Borden Milk Company on the other side with that giant cow on the sign. Saw THE WIZARD OF MARS here.

There was another drive-in about ¾ mile to the west, also on US 80 near Valley Street. I-20 goes over it now. Does anyone know the name of that drive-in?

Could that have been the Showtown Drive-In, Highway 80W and Shaw Road?
