Located in 1956 in rural Georgia’s coast line, today I-95 has brought so much interstate type business I wouldn’t be surprized to find a hamburger joint sitting in that location. The Island Drive-In parked 300 cars and was owned by C.T.Stevens.

Open 1955-1975?

Open for sure in 1967.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

Here is a 1968 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

There was an apparently premature obituary for the Island in the Oct. 19, 1957 issue of BoxOffice:

BRUNSWICK, GA. – Curtis Stevens has closed the Island Drive-In because of other business interests. Stevens, who is a well-driller and operates a miniature railroad at the County Casino, said he (sic) not yet made plans to dispose of the property and equipment.
