The 1950-51 Theatre Catalog included the Joy Drive-In in Langdale, all-year operation, capacity 400 cars, owner Fred T. McLendon.

Boxoffice wrote on December 16, 1950 that Herman Smith of Lanett and Fred Powell of Langdale had leased the Joy Drive-In from McLendon Theatres.

A 1955 aerial photo showed the remains of a drive-in just west of the Chattahoochee River. The approximate address today would be 8 Medical Park, just east of the city of Valley AL, which absorbed the former Langdale in 1980.

A closer address is 1 48th Street, Valley, AL.

That address puts it right where the screen was located. It is true that the entire area has changed considerably. The road that appears to have been the entrance in the 1955 aerial is long gone, but the one approaching the screen is still intact.

This drive-in did not last long.
