Well, its a drive-in I actually got out of my car in the early-1990’s to tromp around. Oh yes, it had been closed for years, but everything was there, but for the screen. Long gone, the red and yellow marquee (I think they were the colors} looked in bad shape and some local rednecks just had to spell a dirty word on the marquee. I took pictures anyway. The concession and booth were on one level and really not that bad of shape, with ceiling tiles and light fixtures still in place. Today, no telling what is there now.
The U.S. 1 Drive-In is at least one of two drive-ins on U.S. 1 which heads all the way to Maine. The other being the Nunber 1 Drive-In, in Augusta, Georgia.
After U.S. 1 leaves Augusta it heads right into South Carolina. This Waycross Drive-In opened in June 1950. It parked 300 cars and was owned in 1956 by United Theatre Ent. I am pretty sure it closed under the Georgia Theatres banner. All in all, it looked like a great drive-in. Wish the screen had been up, but at least I got pictures.
