This drive-in opened as the Springs Road Drive-In and was operating in 1950. The ozoner could accomodate 500 cars. It was operated by Piedmont Theatres until private ownership in 1980. It became the Thunderbird Drive-In in 1980. The last year movies were shown was 1988 but it continued with a Flea Market on week ends until September 14, 1992. The screen and projection equipment have been kept in good shape so if the owner decided to reopen it would be ready to go.
