Sumter Drive-In

The Drive-In opened on July 9, 1947 with Robert Lowrey in “Gods Country”. It had a 150 car capacity. On Mach 5, 1948 it was renamed Sumter Drive-In. It was operated by Everett Olsen before it closed on December 9, 1958 with Randolph Scott in “Buchanan Rides Alone”. The property has since been redeveloped. The Gamecock Bowling Alley is on the old drive-in theatre site.
