A closer address (at least according to Google) is 464 Beauchamp St., Greenville, MS. Today, McCoy’s Building Supply sits on the property.

However, you can still see the ramps and the foundation for the projection booth/concession stand.

Opened July 11, 1950 as the Joy Drive-In Theatre. In 1966, it was rebuilt as the Showtown Drive-In Theatre relaunching on July 15, 1966. On September 22, 1972, the Showtown added a second screen constructed by Wilmut Co. of Texas at a cost of $100,000. The twin opened playing “Dirty Harry” on the East Screen and “The Concert for Bangladesh” on the West Screen. The twin screener seemed to close after the 1980 season which would time out with a 30-year lease. It was demolished. Address was 464 South Beauchamp Street and is roughly where McCoy’s Building Supply was in the 21st Century.

The Showtown was at the northeast corner of Highway 82 East and Beauchamp Street. The Kroger store, which closed a few months ago, was further west on the south side of Highway 82.
