In the late-1960’s Cobb Theatres acquired the interests of the Newman Waters Theater Company which included the Shades Mt. Drive-In. That property was on the southern edge of the commercial development of Vestavia Hills, and within a couple of years Cobb Theatres sold the site and a shopping center was built on the land.
Cobb Theatres moved down the hill to this location which is right on the Vestavia Hills / Hoover line and built a new drive-in. They named this new theatre Thunderbird Drive In which was a very popular name within the Cobb Theatres chain. It opened on October 4, 1968 with Julie Christie in “Far From the Madding Crowd”.
