Wade Enterprises opened this as the Cecil Drive-In Theatre on July 11, 1950 with Esther Williams in “On an Island With You.” The theatre was advertised as midway betwen Enterprise and New Brockton on Highway 84.

James Gaylord of the Troy Theatre took on the theatre in 1955 from the Wades calling it the Coffee Drive-In Theatre. The Coffee was equipped with widescreen for showing CinemaScope presentations beginning in April of 1955 under its new name.

A closer address is 1860 E Mckinnon St, New Brockton, Alabama.

Today, the expansion of U.S. 84 is taking out the back-half of the drive-in, but you can still see the foundation of the projection booth/concession stand, the ramps, and general outline.
