Site Update for Monday, February 22nd 2021

I added some drive-in theater and indoor movie theater photos today. You can check the "Latest Pictures" links below to view them. I have also started working on the small town, ghost town section. I will be adding dozens if not hundreds of them over time. I have lots of original photos and some good research material on that.

I also spruced up the drive-in and motor speedway pages. The grid on the speedway page is now sortable and can be filtered by county. Since I now have some out of state drive-ins listed, I added a filter for state on the drive-ins page.
Site Update for Sunday, February 14th 2021

I have added a new page for out-of-state drive-ins here. I have dozens more locations to add but I do have a start on it. Keep checking back for more updates.
Site Update for Saturday, February 13th 2021

I am posting some major updates today, most notably some excellent vintage drive-in and indoor theater photos sent to me by Andy Gray. His grandfather A.S. “Al” Johnson, owned the Birmingham-based Johnson Construction Co. They were involved in building numerous theaters throughout the region.

Some of the shots contain locations and details not seen previously on this site or any other. Many thanks to Andy for his hard work on scanning these slides so we can all enjoy them. It will probably take me a few days to post it all so keep your eye on the "Latest Pictures" and "Last 30 Information Updates" sections below for the new content.

I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the upcoming Memory Lane Drive-In Theater in Monroe which is being built on the site of the old Denniston Drive-In that closed in 1985. The owner is sparing no expense in doing this right. More on that here and here.

Here is a great photo of the Marysville Drive-In from Andy
