Aerial View

Originally an African American drive-in, it played adult films in its last years. Opened in 1961. Closed in 1980.

As with most African American drive-in theaters, this does not show on any map. It is seen in a 1970 aerial.

Northbound 65 ramp to Decatur Highway takes up part of the drive-in where the entrance road was located. The concession building is still visible though the property is very overgrown.

A closer address (at least for Google) is 675 Decatur Hwy, Gardendale, AL. This address pegs what remains of the concession stand almost dead center. The onramp has taken out much of front section of the drive-in and everything else is overgrown.
