Attached are some photos of the drive
in. It was called "Cleveland Drive
In Theatre". Located in Cleveland, Ga. Built in early 50's
in 1987. I owned the theatre for about 28 years.
I bought it from my brother in 1965. I was 23 years old. It is
that I didn't get my body and face and every thing else smashed
kingdom come when I would go out on the lot to keep things quiet
orderly. There were lots of good old mountain boys there. Could
demolished me. But never had a problem.
Just remember that I had to do what I told them otherwise things
have gotten out of hand. Overall everyone was nice. Had more trouble
with the "Holly Roller" neighbors than anything else.
complain if they rode by and saw the least bit of "skin".
I had my
vengeance a few years ago when I sold the theatre to a garbage
I figured they would make the property look awful......and you
what.......they did. Looks awful!
Lots of good times over the years. Still miss it today.
Some of the attached photos were taken when I was open. And then
when I was closed. The one where I am drinking from a cup was
last night I was open. Also, the young neighborhood kids. The
were taken very soon after I bought the theatre. Ken
