The address is: 802 East Martintown Road #101, North Augusta, SC 29841 ????

Is this the correct location?

and that is a crying shame, the two major Augusta papers hardly even carried the LENOX THEATRE,which was a very nice theatre,pity folks couldn’t get along…

I don’t think it was open until 1975.I am pretty sure about that.My 1956 Motion Picture Almanac has it still open as late as 1956.

Anyone know the location of this drive-in in Augusta?

It was an Afro-American drive-in, but you could probably guess that from it’s name and I found it it was open from ABOUT 1953-1975? I hope someone can check those dates out and find out more info.

Don’t know if the BOOKER Drive-in will get any more info than what I wrote,but anything would be great.One of the few Drive-ins in Augusta that no one really knows about.
