7/9/2010 - Garrett Pierce
According to a recent article in the local paper, the first film show at the Maple City Drive In was The Pony Express. The drive in is basically gone now, with only the projection house and the original fence still remaining. The rest, as seen in the photos below, has been razed. The last time I recall anything happening out there was back around 1990 when the then owner had car shows out front to help promote the business. It didn''t help, and the property was sold soon after to a party unknown who uses it to store salt /minerals there.

Beechler Theatres is running three weekly changes in the Maple City Drive-In at Charlotte.

I have heard rumors that the Charlotte may reopen soon. The marquee and, I believe, the snack bar remain. Bobby Peacock.

Marquee and snack bar/projection booth and fence remain. Lot appears to be used as storage for salt.
