I love this. I had little information on this drive in, but knew where it was and could find it on an old topo map. Now, here are two people who can add to my knowledge. Thank you both.

The correct address is:
13160 Wintzell Ave, Bayou La Batre, AL

The current address is on the wrong side of the street. It “might” have been called the U Drive-In at one time.

The correct address is 13135 Wintzell Ave Bayou La Batre, Alabama. Today, Boja’s Foods Inc. sits on the east side of the property while the west side is overgrown with trees. The drive-in was built after 1953, but you can see the remnants of the ramps in a 1997 photo.

There are no visible remains of the drive-in, although there might be ramps and foundations underneath the tree cover.
