My first job after graduating high school was co-managing a 50-year-old drive in in rural Virginia with my wife Diana, an experience that instilled an affinity for old outdoor theaters in both of us.
Located on Highway 63, the 280-car Walterboro Drive-In is one of a handful of recognizable abandoned drive-ins in the Palmetto State. The theater opened in 1950 and closed in 1990. While the skeleton of the screen still stands, but a trailer home sales lot occupies the property today. Stay tuned, there’s more to come and this post will be updated with more photos and a great tale from the former owner.
