It was advertised as Circle South in 1970.

It was just called South 29. Not circle south 29. The Circle Drive-in was a different place off of Reidville Road Circle.

Worked at this location in the late seventies for Mr John Vassey as relief projectionist. We ran Hardcore at that time.

Well here are the sign photos including one showing the dual paved entrance drives off 29. Clearly by the time this sign went up the name ‘Circle’ was no longer used.

The sign still stands out on US 29 where the entrance was. The sign reads ‘South 29 Drive In’. Was that the original name? Then it changed to ‘Senic’ and finally ‘Circle South 29 Drive In’? Was the sign a new one put up by Piedmont, without ‘Circle’ so as not to confuse it with the new one over on the Riedville Road at the Circle? I can’t believe that the sign would have been there when it was operating as Senic. If so I wonder what the original 1947 sign looked like.
