Claco Drive-In

The Claco Drive-In was opened September 17, 1953 with Robert Ryan in “Horizons West” & John Payne in “Crosswinds”. A clown figure named ‘Claco’ was created and his image was used throughout the drive-in. It was an amphitheatre, using the natural slope of the land on which the cars were parked. There was a patio with 25 seats in front of the concession /projection building. Another facility was a playground in front of the 96 feet wide screen, which was made of concrete and steel. The Claco Drive-In was closed on June 22, 1975 with Burt Reynolds in “W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings”.

Built and operated by Consolidated Theatres, the drive-in on Highway 10 off U. S. 69 north of town has been promoted by a neon sign of Claco, the clown, which shows up for miles.”
