From the May 6, 1950 issue of BoxOffice:

CHARLESTON, S. C. – The Ebony Drive-In, one of the few outdoor theatres for Negro patrons, has been opened here by John Thomason and Andrea C. Patterson, president and secretary-treasurer, respectively, of the Palmetto Theatre Corp.

The Ebony, which accommodates 400 cars and 300 walk-in patrons, is the first of five drive-ins for Negroes planned by Palmetto. Thomason said the others will be constructed at Greenville, N. C., Savannah, Ga., Atlanta and Jacksonville, Fla.
