Jet Drive-In

The Jet Drive-In was Columbus, Georgia’s smallest drive-in, only parking 150 cars and understandably, one of the first to close. It was a Martin Theatre which was located in Columbus, Georgia.

The Jet Drive-In was an African-American drive-in theatre, and was operating from at least 1953 until the mid-1960’s.

The smallest of Columbus' drive-ins might be the hardest to get info on.

Yes, this one is faded into obscure history as much as the one on Morris Road has. Hopefully some Columbus old-timers will see this and expand the histories!

Open 1955?

Not open for sure in 1967.
