This one was at the northeast corner of US 43’s T-intersection with Old Drive Inn Road.

The address for this Drive-in is 13137 Highway 43 Grove Hill AL 36451.

The western half is now Southern Pines Mobile Park. The eastern half although overgrown still has the concession stand foundation. A couple of ramps are still visible in the mobile park.

This does not map correctly on Google maps but according to YP (yellow pages), this is the mobile park across from Old Drive-in Road.

Please update.

U.S. 43 & Old Drive In Road, Grove Hill, AL 36451 is the correct address. It works just fine. Cross street addresses work just fine.
