There was a drive-in located at the address of N Garland Rd & Scott Rd, McKenzie. This appears in 1956 and 1957 aerial photos but is gone ten years later in 1967. There is nothing left of the drive-in today. Now we need to figure out WHICH of the two McKenzie drive-in’s this one was.

My guess is that the Sundown became the Star-Vue. At least, that’s what the Exhibitor reported on April 29, 1953: “Fred T. McLendon Theatres assumed ownership-operations of the Sundown Drive-In, McKenzie, Ala., from H. C. Jenkins. Al Morgan, booker, advised that operations will resume shortly, and that it was renamed the Star-Vue Drive-In.”
