61 South Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This 600 car ozoner opened in 1951 and was owned by John Kohler. It had a long run serving the people of Jefferson County. Towards the end it would hold flea markets on the week ends and show the movies at night. It finally went to a week-end only operation and soon closed as a drive-in giving way to being a flea market only. The drive in still stands and was used for the flea market. It still had the big 61 South road side marquee announcing events at the flea market. The flea market has now closed.

It looks like the plaintiff in this suit was headed to the outhouse one night when she was accidentally shot by the projectionist at the adjacent drive-in:
