The Circle Drive-In opened on June 27, 1969, featuring Paul Newman in “Cool Hand Luke” and “Harper”. It was owned by Piedmont Productions Inc. of NC and had a parking capacity for 500 cars. Bob Williams was the manager. It was Spartanburg’s last drive-in to open and the most modern of all the Spartanburg area drive-ins. Looking at the movies the drive-in was screening after opening in 1969, it was mostly X-rated movie fare. That ended when the Circle South 29 Drive-In got into trouble for screening X-rated movies in April 1971. After that, both drive-in theatres stopped screening X-rated moves.
On September 9, 1978, the Circle Drive-In was renamed West-View Drive-In. The opening day movie advertisement said it is under new control (maybe it got sold?). The West-View Drive-In screened its last show in October 1982. The drive-in was demolished and is now the home for a BI-LO Shopping Center and CVS Pharmacy.
