Sam Nunn Boulrvard & Woodlawn Drive is pretty close, but the new address is the Self Storage Site which is the Site of the Drive-In.

More info and photos are always welcome.

I believe Perry had a theatre in town named the Pal, the building was still there four or five years ago in need of repair and renovation, I hope it was not torn down for a (you guessed right) a parking lot. There may have been another theatre as well in town. Can anyone look into this, would appreciate any information and photos.

I understand the old Muse Theatre in Perry is going to be renovated and restored. Site needs to be updated to indicate Perry had a indoor theatre.

When the Perry Drive-In opened in the summer of 1971, it was one of about a dozen theaters in the independent circuit operated by John H. “Tommy” Thompson, a long-time Georgia exhibitor. About $125,000 had been expended on the project, exclusive of the land, according to a brief item in the August 9 issue of Boxoffice.

Despite the screen located 2,000ft away from the road, it can be seen on two roads, including U.S. Highway 41. Carlos Merritt, the city of Perry’s council, said the city’s building code specifically says that the screen cannot be vision from major streets closer to 2,000ft. They totally complain about the growing concerns over adult films as it what it did at the M and T Drive-In in Warner Robins for a short time. Surprisingly, it didn’t show too much of it although it did show a selection of R-Rated films at times (including ones with racist titles).

A few years later, a twin-screen theater was built at the nearly-now-defunct Eastgate Plaza Shopping Center which will have its own Cinema Treasures page soon. I totally don’t know anything on its history about the twin at Eastgate, but any additional information about it will be greatly appreciated.

Did Perry had a drive-in theater before 1971, or is this the only one?
