The Pines Drive-In located in Tifton, Georgia was typical of your small town drive-ins. It was opened by Martin Theatres by 1950. Typical summer bill would mostly be a good western, about the same as most drive-ins in the era, a quick game of Bingo and a feature.

Heading to Florida, you can’t miss Tifton. I-75 runs right down the middle. The Pines Drive-In, in 1956 was putting 300 cars on the lot. It was still open in 1970. Don’t know when it closed so I hope others will help with the history of this South Georgia drive-in.

No I did not see Robins post on National Hills but I will look.By the way we are off-topic Chuck and Patsy may get us for that for not using our e-mail did you see that?So speaking of the Pine Drive-in I know nothing of it,there I am back on topic.

Anyone have photos or an address?

I THINK it opened ABOUT 1950?

It was still open in 1967 and was still owned by Martin Theaters of Georgia and Alabama, Incorpoated of Columbus, Georgia.

I understand that the Interstate Hiway System first started in Tifton.
