Corinth Drive-In

Set in the small town of Guys, Tennessee the Corinth Drive-In served this small town with plenty of westerns and family pictures. It was opened on August 6, 1953. The playground always full of children. John Carter ran this drive-in always being there and seeing a good show was put on. It parked 350 cars which is huge for a small town.

Looks like this theater would’ve been at about 822 Old US 45, just north of the Mississippi line.

Looks like the drive-in is right across the street from the church at 1142 US 45 S. 822 is a few blocks North of the old site.

Boxoffice, Aug. 1, 1953: “The Corinth Drive-In, Guys, Tenn., opens August 6, John M. Carter, secretary-treasurer of Corinth Drive-In Corp., owner, announced. This is a new drive-in.”

A closer address is 1172 Old Highway 45, Guys, TN.

Google Maps has updated their addresses and this puts it right across the street from where the entrance of the drive-in once stood.

An interesting aspect of the drive-in was the screen was separated from the ramps by a relatively large untouched green field. Perhaps this was the open playground as described in the description on this page.

The drive-in was intact and perhaps operational in a 1986 aerial. By 1997 it had been demolished.

Today, the property is completely overgrown with tall trees. But the trees show the outline and ramps of the drive-in. In addition, the foundation of the projection booth/concession stand may still be present underneath the foliage.
