Dixieland Drive-In schedule, July 1977

The Dixieland Drive-In was opened on March 12, 1952 with a capacity of 300 cars, owner P. P. Jeffcoat, who also owned the Midway Drive-In near Opp. John Young sold the Dixieland Drive-In to George S. Owen in May 1955, who renamed it the Opp Drive-In. Motion Picture Almanacs listed its capacity as 350 cars. Its final appearance in the MPA drive-in list was 1965. By July 1977 it had gone back to its original Dixieland Drive-In name.

I have a schedule under the “Dixieland Drive-In” name for July 1977, so it seems that the name change didn’t stick.

Good catch, fatfink. The Dixieland was listed under Opp AL in the Motion Picture Almanacs' drive-in lists from 1977 to 1979, owned by Con-McLend.

The MPA circuit listings showed the Dixieland among Connet Theatres' holdings from at least 1976 through at least the 1988 edition, nine years after it fell off the MPA drive-in list.
