SC-200 and Park Drive,

The Drive-In was opened prior to 1949 when it was operated by L.E. Edwards. At that time it had a capacity for 200 cars. By 1950 he had renamed it Lucky Star Drive-In, still with a 200 car capacity. By 1953 he had renamed it Mitford Drive-In and the car capacity had been increased to 254.
The Mitford Drive-In is a drive-in I am pretty much sure I saw while it was closed for good. Before Interstate 77 to get from Charlotte to Augusta, one of the ways to get around was taking the state highway, and the Midford Drive-In being in Great Falls, South Carolina, was located outside of town.
Funny thing, I was with a friend and we zoomed by the drive-in and I bet I only saw twenty seconds or so, but clearly remember the Mitford Drive-In. Tall grass had grown-up all over the lot, but it hadn’t looked like it had been closed too long. This was in 1977 or 1978, when I first saw the Mitford Drive-In.
Years later while going to Charlotte I pulled off I-77 and drove several miles looking for the Mitford Drive-In in both directions, but I was pretty sure it was on the South side heading to Columbia. I never could find it!
