The Sunset Drive In was opened in 1955. It was the second drive-in theatre built by Moultrie entrepreneur, Charlie Powell, and was done in partnership with the Georgia Theatre Company. This would be Powell’s last new theatre project. Other local theatres built by Powell included the Grand Theatre, the Moultrie Theatre, the Colquitt Theatre and the Moultrie Drive-In.
The Sunset Drive-In was known for showing “B” movies. There was a small airport grass landing strip right behind it. On the weekends, high school kids would drive down the landing strip and “park” and watch the movies without paying (or sound). It was closed in 1980.
