A new drive-in in South Carolina may be open as soon as March according to its owner. Brent Anderson told the Florence News that he’s at the “end of the permits and engineering process” for the Center Road Drive-In Movie Theater, which will be a few miles west of the Darlington Raceway south of State Highway 34. “Construction won’t take too long once the permits are in, but it takes a lot longer to get access to those than a normal person might think,” Anderson said.
According to the article, the Center Road have a two-sided screen showing first-run movies in double features on both sides. It will be on land (on Center Road, of course) that Anderson’s family has owned for more than 75 years. He plans to start with a Thursday-Sunday schedule in the spring and may expand to seven days a week in the summer.
It’s always nice to see another new drive-in pop up. We can all follow its progress by checking in on the Center Road’s Facebook page.
