Its the gravel used for the ramps, the sun reflecting off it makes it look blue.

1391 US Hwy 41, Sycamore, GA 31790. The derelict house at this address is where the entrance road was. Nothing appears to remain of the drive-in.

I’m pretty sure this is the place as this listing:

Appears to have opened in the 1960’s and was open until at least the mid 1980’s.

As of July 2022 this location still remains as the abandoned drive-in, it hasn’t been redeveloped at all.

2495 Theatre Rd, Cranbrook. The screen was actually still there until mid 2019. It can also be seen on Google Street View.

There was a small drive-in located at the present address of 498 Courthouse Rd, Princeton, WV 24739 which is close to Bluefield, it appears in aerial photos from 1955 until 1961. A ford dealership now occupies the site, I wonder if this could be the actual location?

Most of the photos on this listing are from the Sunset which doesn’t appear to have its own listing here. The Sunset became the RV Park where the screen remained until it fell down in 2018, the Elk is now a bike park as mentioned above.

MichaelKilgore, the below page lists an “Enderby Drive-In Theatre” that operated for only one season in 1953. So maybe that was the original?
