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.

An even closer address is 1131 Old Hwy 45 S, Guys, TN.

Google Maps has now included the address on the property itself, putting it right on the entrance road near where the screen once stood.
