The Frayser Drive-In was opened by Malco Theatres on March 29, 1951. It was on the border of Memphis proper and its suburb of Frayser to the north. Unlike many drive-in’s its screen could be seen from the highway which passed its entrance. This proved very interesting when the drive-in went through an adult film period. It closed in 1984 and the lot has been redeveloped.

this was a popul;ar drive in during their hay day but lost its glow along with others in the 70s….we would stow away in the trunks of cars to avoid admission of the larger churches in frayser would conduct an outreach ministry there on sumdays for those who wanted to go to church but did not want to go to the trouble of getting out of their car to do so.

i think the funniest thing about the frayser drive is that as it was in its death throes it began to show porn….now understand that the screen could be seen very plainly from heavily travelled thomas street….i would not be surprised if this was not the cause of many auto accidents.
