The first ad for this drive-in appeared in the Sun on July 11th, 1950.

The ad and (I believe) the photo on this page are of the Jaxon Drive-In, located on Nashville Highway, and not the Jaxon South Drive-In, which was located on Highway 45 South between Jackson and Bemis. They were two completely different drive-ins, though I do believe they were operated by the same company. I am not 100% sure that the photo is the Jaxon Drive-In and not the Jaxon South Drive-In, but it is positioned in the way I remember the Jaxon Drive-In screen being positioned. I believe the Jaxon South Drive-In opened later than the Jaxon Drive-In, and closed earlier. I only drove by the Jaxon South a couple of times, but drove by the Jaxon fairly often.

This address seems to work well on Google Earth for the Drive-In pictured above: 752 Old Pinson Road, Jackson, TN 38301.
