The Marbro must have originally been the 82 drive in or the Pines drive in. It was west of the city of Tifton on US 82. When I saw it several years ago, the marquee, screen, concession/projection and boxoffice was still standing with a road cut through the middle. The marquee had an advertisment for the local newspaper and there was an old lamphouse laying on the grown.

Chuck, US 82 is the same as Albany Hwy.

There was a second drive-in on US 82 in Tifton, which was closed due to construction of I-75, and is underneath part of the southeast section of the US 82/I-75 cloverleaf.

Here is a 1972 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

The other drive-in was further west on US 82 near Carpenter Rd, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

Which one was the Hi-Way 82 and which was the Pines Drive-In? Your guess is as good as mine.

There also may have been a Marbo Drive-In located in Tifton, as mentioned on the Drive-ins.com site.

Thanks Andy.I talk to some locals and they can’t recall any of the names of Tifton’s Drive-ins.And these are people in their 60’s.

Looks like it was on US 82 just west of Carpenter Road. The outline is still pretty visible, but half of the lot has been redeveloped and a Marshall Road runs through the middle of the site.

It was not open in 1967.

Tifton is the home of AGRIRAMA, which has nothing to do with CINERAMA. It is a Museum of Agriculture.
