The first drive-in theater in the Greenville area, the South 11 Drive-In opened about 1949. It was located at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Greenville Boulevard, at that time far south of the Greenville city limits. The South 11 Drive-In Theatre closed in the early-1960’s, around the same time the Tice Drive-In opened further south on Memorial Drive (in what is now part of Winterville).

It was demolished shortly after closing and an Esso station was built where the screen and ticket booth were located. The site is now occupied by the former AutoMax used-car dealership, a Hess gas station, and several other businesses.

Years after the South 11 Drive-In was demolished, two multiplex theaters were built nearby: the Plitt Quad/Carmike Carolina East 4 (1980-2001) and the Greenville Grande Stadium 14 (opened 2007).
