The Scott Drive-In was one beautiful drive-in theatre! With 550 car spaces this theatre was a real entertainment complex for the Decatur area! In the 50’s and 60’s the drive-in had a marquee that went over the entrance road. In the 70’s the Scott got a newer marquee that looked almost identical to that of the Glenwood Drive-In. The newer marquee sat between the entrance and exit roads. I remember they had a playground down by the screen. They also had a storage shed that looked like a little mansion where they stored the letters to change out the marquee. All in all the Scott Drive-In was truly a wonderful drive-in theatre!

Link to the Drive In ladder ad in the Atlanta paper on August 5, 1964. The blogger has also written up some of his memories of working at these places. Worth a look if you are interested in the drive in culture from 1970 – 1990.
