U.S. 80 & Bypass Rd, Savannah, GA 31408

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

Here is a 1951 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

A more accurate address is actually Kicklighter Way, Savannah, GA 31408. This street runs almost directly down the center of where the ramps were.

The Exhibitor, Feb. 13, 1952: “New lessees of the Circle Drive-In, on U. S. 80 near the Traffic Circle, are Harris Robinson, R. A. Edmondson, Jr., Horace Denning, and Hudson Edwards. The spot will be operated by Dixie Drive-In Theatres under the management of Edwards, who is also manager, Hi-Way 80. A 10-year lease was taken on the site and theatre from P. Fred Woods and J. Lee Woods, owners of the 250-car spot. Certain equipment was also acquired from A. T. Livingston, operator of the Circle since it opened in October, 1949. The Circle will open after extensive repairs and improvements.”

I think this Dixie and the Hi-Way 80 theatre are mixed up. The aerial images on the Hi-Way 80 post seem to line up with the size differences and the Dixie aka Circle would then be by the traffic circle shown in the aerial view.
