In researching this theater, I believe the Summerville Drive-In opened on July 5, 1948. I could not locate an opening day advertisement for it. It was the first of the L.H. Ayers Drive-In Theatres chain. Eventually it included the 4-Mile Drive-In, St. Andrew’s Drive-In, and the Holly Hill Drive-In in Holly Hill, SC. They were advertised has “Charleston’s Only Home-Owned Drive-Ins”.
The Summerville Drive-In had a car capacity of 200 cars and had in-a-car speakers. The drive-in closed in July of 1956. The property sat empty for years and was finally redeveloped for retail.
