In the late-1950’s, Meridian, Mississippi was served by two nice size drive-ins. The Royal Drive-In parked 400 cars and was owned by A. Lloyd Royal of Royal Theatres chain. Going to Texas you go right through Meridian on I-20 and right off the interstate sat a closed drive-in. I took the next exit and came back and snapped a few pictures, but there was no marquee, maybe the interstate had the right of way and took it. Nonetheless, the drive-in was fenced up where you could only take pictures outside the drive-in. The concession was standing, the booth on the same level. Really did not look in bad shape, but was it the Royal Drive-In or the Meridian Drive-In or even a later one built in the 1960’s?
