The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. Old Covington Hwy was formerly known as Hwy 12. The drive-in footprint is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

Here is a 1968 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

I believe that this location was open into the late 60’s. My family moved to Atlanta in 1967 and I recall seeing ads for this place in the paper. Two things made them notable. One was that they were not part of the drive in ladder ad that Georgia Theatre and Storey used, but were individual ads for this site and another which I think was either the Hwy 54 or Hwy 85 Drive in. The other was that they were “Adults Only.” Atlanta had a lot of adult theatres in those days but most were downtown and all except these were indoor.
