Bennett Drive-In

The Bennett Drive-In served the residents of Abbeville. It was located northwest of town, on the south side of Alabama-10 a few yards west of the US 431 junction. It opened on January 21, 1953 with Van Heflin in Tomahawk".

The property has been reclaimed by trees, but the rows are still faintly visible. There is a mailbox at the end of the old driveway and there appears to be a small building at the rear property line.

Ward Bennett, manager of the Archie Theatre, decided to build a new drive-in in August of 1952. Bennett used his namesake in calling the complex the Bennett Drive-In Theatre. The theatre launched January 21, 1953 with Van Heflin in “Tomahawk.”

Exact address on Google maps is 409 AL-10 Abbeville, AL 36310. From the satellite photo it looks like there is a swimming pool and you can make out where the ramps used to be in the pattern of the trees. Please correct address Thank you.

The house is on the same spot where the concession building was so it might’ve been renovated into a residence.
