This was located at the north end of Britain Road, where Britain Road ran up against the south service road of Highway 183. The screen was on the south side of Highway 193, and faced south.
The 183 Drive-In was opened in 1950. It screened “The Great Locomotive Chase” in 1956, and a re-release of “X-15” in 1961, and the 1962 movie “Tales of Terror” in 1964.
The concession stand was a substantial cinder-block structure, which had a seating area, maybe four rows of ten seats, that face the screen through a picture window.
The 183 Drive-In was operating until 1983. The location is now a freight depot for trucks.
