During the summer of 1974, I worked in Tazewell. I remember this drive-in was open. One of the features was a film called “Preacher Man Meets Widow Woman.” I certainly couldn’t forget a classic like that!

Does anybody know any info about the Tazewell Twin Cinema located across the street from the Sunset Drive-In at the Fourways Shopping Center in North Tazewell? There was not a lot of info that I can find rather than where the theater is located and a July 1994 picture of close-eye view of both the doors and the Now Showing poster.
