Sunset Drive-In in Brunswick, Georgia was the city’s largest drive-in, parking 392 cars. It was opened prior to 1955, and was served by US 25 and state Highway 17, before I-95 ripped right into town. The Sunset Drive-In relied so much on vistors that it found it hard to compete for business in the off-season that it closed in the mid-1960’s. It was owned by J.M. Mann.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

Above address does not properly. It points to the southern intersection. The drive-in was at the northern end. Use 4145 Norwich Saint Exd (public works) to map. The outline is just south of this location.
