The Houston Drive-In was opened around 1952 and was operated by Russ Saunders. It initially had a capacity for 300 cars. This was Macon’s largest drive-in in the late-1950’s parking 900 cars, one of the largest drive-ins in middle Georgia. Almost all of Houston Avenue runs through South Macon, in those days a decent part of town. The Houston Avenue Drive-In was booked by Theatre Booking Service. Theatre Booking Service was out of Charlotte, NC.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

Could this have been known locally as the Southside Drive-In?
