Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Parkway Drive-In opened on May 5, 1955. The opening night attraction was “Submarine Command”. The drive-in boasted a screen measuring 110' x 55'. Advertisement stated it was the world’s largest screen and also the worlds largest drive-in cafeteria. A note on this drive-in and the 231 Drive-In., the back of the drive-in lots butted up to each other. The Parkway Drive-In’s last day of operation was February 12, 1978. Cobb Theatres operated the drive-in from 1969 until its closing.

Any additional information on the Parkway Drive-In would be appreciated.

This property is now empty of all the remains or ruins of the previous theater. Satellite and drive-by views show the parking lines for the two screen lots, but little else remains. The property is now fronted by a small used car dealership on Memorial Parkway.

By 1972 newspapers advertised both the Parkway and Woody’s Drive-In as Cobb Theatres.
