1920 Old Bartow Road,
2 people favorited this theater
Open prior to 1955, the Wales Drive-In was located west of town on the original alignment of Highway 60. Years later, 60 was realigned slightly south of the old road—a distance of just a few hundred yards—and the original alignment became Old Bartow Road. Interestingly, the theater bought the land directly across the street and extended their driveway over Old 60 to New 60, where a new marquee was constructed. By 1957 it was operated by the Talgar Theatre Company.
The theater has been closed since 1982, and not much is left. The screen was demolished, though it appears that they left the pile of cinderblocks in place. The concession stand/projection booth stands in the back of the lot with a new fenced-in enclosure right in front of it. The driveways and marquee still remain, as do most of the ramps.
