Albert Weis Built cinemas and Drive-ins in Georgia during the late 60’s to early 70’s with Martin theatres in firm control of Columbus I bet this Savannah,Georgia showman stayed out of Columbus.

The Edgewood Drive-In was open at least through the 1960s and maybe slightly into the 1970s, a year or two. The last movie I remember seeing there was “Bonnie And Clyde”, though. It was an auto repair shop through the 1980s-90s, but that too is now gone, and the place is deserted.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 4231 Macon Rd. The west exit to the shopping center in front of the drive-in was the entrance. Giddens was the exit to the theatre. Part of the outline is still there.
