Old aerials don’t show a drive in at that location, but maybe 3 blocks away on Park St. there’s an old decrepit drive in there. Is this the place?

In 1956 it was owned by J.E. Duncan.

N Park St & Old Bremen Rd, Carrollton, GA 30117

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using present day imagery.

@Chuck: Earth Explorer has quality aerial imagery available for 1955 and 1972. Both those years showed the drive-in as being on what is now N Park St & Old Bremen Rd.

50 years ago that might have meant 471 Linda Lane. Who knows?

Neither of those years (1955 and 1972) showed any other drive-ins, or residual hints of previous drive-in activity.

Old Bremen Rd intersects N Park St in twice, causing the mapping to be thrown off. The address in this post will map accurately. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.
