The Washington Drive-In was a small rural drive-in serving Wilkes County in East Georgia, just about between Athens and Augusta.
The drive-in held a little over 150 cars typical for that size town. It was run by Martin Theatres as was the downtown theatre in Washington, the Wilkes Theatre.
Today, one can find nothing of this drive-in. Gone within a few years of opening. Television, most likely the cause. The closest drive-in to the Washington Drive-In was the Melody Drive-In, in Thomson, Georgia. While researching the Wilkes Theatre for CT, I asked a lady with the Washington-Wilkes Historical Society about the Washington Drive-In. She being in her middle 60’s and a life long resident she told me she had never heard of the Washington Drive-In theatre. It closed in the late-1950’s. The Wilkes Theatre in Washington would run films into the 1970’s.
