411 Twin Drive-In

The 411 Drive-In opened on June 2, 1953 with Audie Murphy in “Column South”. The drive-in was built by Glover A. Johnson and his son Emory on a 30-year lease at the confluence of U.S. Route 411 and County Road 265 in Cherokee County. Glover A. Johnson died in June of 1983 and Emory decided to closed the drive-in later that year.

In 2001 a renovated 411 Drive-In re-opened. It is now operated by Rex and Carl Johnson who are the sons of Emory Johnson. This drive-in has a capacity for 250 cars. A second screen was added in 2008.

The 1955 Theatre Catalog lists Exec: Glover Johnson, and the oddly specific capacity of 237. The 411 web site mentions that Glover was Emory’s father.

The 1959 IMPA lists “G.A. Johnson” as the owner or booker and capacity 250 for the “41 Drive-In” in “Centro”. The 1963 IMPA doesn’t list it at all. The spellings are correct in the 1969 IMPA, with a capacity of 200.

The 411 web site mentions reopening in July 2001, but doesn’t give any previous close date. The IMPAs carried a listing for it through at least the 1987 edition, now with “E. Johnson.”
