Lake County Drive-In

Opened prior to 1955, the Lake County Drive-In was located in the tiny town of Wynnburg. Wynnburg is halfway between Tiptonville and Ridgely, the two major towns in Lake County. It was located on Highway 78 (now known as the Carl Perkins Highway after Lake County’s most famous son) on the left if you were driving south from Tiptonville to Ridgely. Virtually all the town of Wynnburg is on the other side of the highway.

I never actually saw a movie there, but drove by it often in the early-1970’s. I don’t know when it closed, but by the late-1980’s there was no sign it had ever been there.

Uploaded aerial from 1963. It looks the drive-in was turned into small landing strip. There is a Crop Production business across the road. My thinking is that it is used for aerial spraying of crops.

Boxoffice, Feb. 29, 1960: “J. U. Burton, owner, reports that the Lake Drive-In, Wynnburg, had to close temporarily to repair wind damage to its screen.”
