The Carol Drive-In was opened in September 1952 when it was operated by Cranfill H. Cox. It can be seen in historic aerials. It was closed at the end of the 1961 season. It was demolished in 1967. Fox Stephens Field - Gilmer Municipal Airport is where the drive-in stood.

Cranfill H. Cox opened in September of 1952. He also operated the two downtown Gilmer theatres – the Strand and the Crystal. The Carol Drive-In closed at the end of the 1961 season likely fulfilling a 10-year leasing agreement. The drive-in was torn town in 1967 making room for the local airfield.
