John's Island Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The John’s Island Drive-In opened August 3, 1950 featuring “Who Is My Neighbor”. Owned and operated by Thelma C. Nix. The drive-in was only open two days a week from what I can find, it was open on Thursdays for white patrons and Friday for colored patrons. Looking at the only two movie advertisements I could find, the drive-in showed religious films. It was only open for two weeks and closed. In looking at 1957 aerial views of John’s Island, I could not find trace of it. So it must have been very small Mom and Pop type drive-in.

The cinema is categorized as being in Ohio, the map says so, too, but the address says South Carolina. The address is correct, since Maybank Highway (see image) and River Road are two streets that are close to each other in South Carolina, not in Ohio.
