Fotomac, The double feature playing on July 15, 1977:“Felicia” and “I Feel it Coming”.
Found the ad. It opened on October 18th, 1951.
Can anyone remember what the feature was for the week of 15 July, when Star Wars came to town?
First Drive In Movie I ever went to with a Special Boyfriend and watched an Elvis Movie in 1962-1963
Here is the marquee
Pity no one in KNOXVILLE took a picture….
Approx. address for this drive-in was 7406 Chapman Highway.
The location of this theater is where the Super Wal-Mart now stands. The marquee was there until the late-1990’s – early 2000’s.
IN 1956 THE CHAPMAN DRIVE IN WAS OWNED BY R.S. SPURGEON. 200 CARS PRETTY SMALL FOR A KNOXVILLE DRIVE IN.
ON SEPT. 25 1967 THE CHAPMAN DRIVE IN WAS PLAYING .. HILLBILLYS IN A HAUNTED HOUSE… WITH THE SECOND FEATURE HERCULES IN A HAUNTED HOUSE. IT WAS BILLED AS KNOXVILLE’S 1ST RUN SHOWING.
the marquee sign still exists,restored, and can be seen if you take the old highway 61 from Blaine back towards knoxville.
