The Auto Drive-In is a drive-in in Greenwood, S.C., below Anderson and Greenville, S.C. in Western South Carolina. It originally opened in 1945 and was closed by the mid-1980’s. I have stopped there before and took pictures of the closed drive-in. It had a big ‘No Trespassing’ warning on the boxoffice so I just stood there and snapped some pictures.
The screen was in great shape, in fact to me it looked like it replaced an old one? Very nice steel structure. The concession stand was a light blue and if I remember right, the projection booth was separate from the snack area. The marquee was still standing.
I think one time I drove by in the 1980’s, and 007 was playing"Never Say Never Again".
I noticed the Greenwood Mall Cinemas had closed, but right up the road was a new multi-plex cinemas. The Auto Drive-In held 220 cars and was owned in 1956 by A.T. Livingston.
In 2008, the Auto Drive-In was renovated and reopened, now with two screens. It now has a full restaurant, and a playground for the kids.
