The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

Here is a 1952 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

Also, I believe this drive-in operated under the name “Star Drive-In.”

I can’t seem to get that address to map properly.

The above address will map better to the location of the drive-in, which was on the north side of Dixie Rd, just west of the intersection with Dixie Rd.

According to a small item in Billboard Magazine, September 2, 1950, the Board of Commissioners of Brooks County on August 26 granted the Quitman Drive-in on Thomasville Road a permit to show movies on Sundays.

Weird that being in Billboard,you’d think Boxoffice.Guess it wasn’t all Music in those days.
