Pines Drive-In

The Pines Drive-In located in Tifton, Georgia was typical of your small town drive-ins. Typical summer bill would mostly be a good western, about the same as most drive-ins in the era, a quick game of Bingo and a feature.

Heading to Florida, you can’t miss Tifton. I-75 runs right down the middle. The Pines Drive-In, in 1956 was putting 300 cars on the lot and like so many theatres in Georgia it was a Martin Theatre operation. Don’t know when it closed so I hope others will help with the history of this South Georgia drive-in.

CORRECT NAME IS:

pineS.

Anyone have photos or an address?

I THINK it opened ABOUT 1950?

It was still open in 1967 and was still owned by Martin Theaters of Georgia and Alabama, Incorpoated of Columbus, Georgia.

I understand that the Interstate Hiway System first started in Tifton.

Approx. location for this drive-in was U.S. 82 & Marshall Dr.

Marshall Dr. runs through where the drive-in stood. some ramps are still visible to the east of this.
