The Camellia Drive-In was open in the mid-1950’s. Car capacity was listed at 300. Thru 1964 it was operated by Martin Theatres followed by McLendon Theatres thru closing. The Camellia Drive-In closed in the mid-1980’s.

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

This drive-in was located at 1300 E Commerce St.

Use 1306 to map (the Shell gas station next door).

Now a ballfield.

Please update.

When people refer back to a drive-in, they sometimes forget the actual name and simply refer to it by the name of the town it was in. The drive-in near Greenville would then be called the Greenville Drive-In, even through it operated under another name. This happens constantly, and leads to a lot of confusion, as well as duplicate listings.

Could there have been a Greenville Drive-In seperate from the Camellia Drive-In? It’s possible, but unless there is a newspaper ad showing both drive-ins operating simultaneously, probably not.
