Before you hit the mountains heading into Kentucky, La Follette, Tennessee is your last town of any size. Summer vacationers would catch a movie at the Starlite Drive-In. It was one of two drive-in’s in that East Tennessee town and the first to close once Knoxville’s televsion signals hit that small town. It closed in the late-1950’s.
It seemed the late-1950’s and early-1960’s saw a lot of smaller drive-ins closed. The Starlite Drive-in parked 300 cars, 3 more than the other drive-in in town, the Skyway Drive-In. The Starlite Drive-In was owned by Tim Smith.
