Rexview Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Rexview Drive-In opened September 22, 1948 with Shirley Temple in “Honeymoon”. Car capacity was listed at 450 cars. The screen was destroyed in 1952 by a tornado and rebuilt. It was operated by the Georgia Theatre Co. until 1961, when Martin Theatres took over ownership.

The Rexview Drive-In closed in 1980 and was demolished in 1982. The site is now the Columbus Technical College. Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.

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

Here is a 1968 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.
