The Thunderbird Drive-In was a popular drive-in which opened July 27, 1962 with Audie Murphy in “6 Black Horses” & Peter Cushing in “Night Creatures”. Usually in the 1960’s one week a month it would show adult films such as Russ Meyer films. Although I never went there I have heard that it had a nice playground for children in front of the screen. You could also see the screen from I-285 as you drove by. It was taken over by Cobb Theatres in 1976 and closed in 1979.
The theater was replaced by a Sam’s Club which has morphed into a Home Depot.
This drive-in was about a mile above the 54 Drive-In.
