The Midway Drive-In was located on Highway 441 between Sevierville and Gatlinburg. It was on the right side of the highway as you were driving towards Gatlinburg. I remember it was located behind some other businesses with only the sign located on the highway, leading down narrow lane back to the theater. It was opened around 1952, when it was operated by C.L. Wilson.
I went there several times during the mid-1970’s, and unlike other drive-ins in East Tennessee at the time, it showed only one feature instead of double features. The only other theater in Sevier County at the time was the Gatlinburg Cinema in Gatlinburg. I remember seeing “Day of the Animals” and “Shadow of the Hawk” there. Not sure when it closed, but was probably swallowed up by development in Pigeon Forge by the early-1980’s.
