The Drive-In was at the site of what is now the Brook Hollow Village Shopping Center. The Entrance was at what is now Brook Hollow Parkway, before there was a Brook Hollow Parkway. The North edge of the Drive-In was what is now Brook Hollow Parkway.

A 2 bedroom apartment was built into the concession stand.

The screen was at the East end of the lot.

Held from ~594-~642? cars.

Open from ~1961-~1985? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Open for sure in 1967.

Owned by Storey Theatres, Inc. of Atlanta, Frederick G. Storey, President and Gen. Mgr., they owned 16 theaters all in Georgia.

More info and photos always welcome.
