Alabama Drive-Ins

Alabama got off to a slow start as a drive-in state with only 13 drive-ins in operation by 1948. The 1950's were a different story though. Within ten years, Alabama had added another 83 drive-in movie theaters, peaking in 1958 with 96. Since that time, Alabama has been in a tailspin, with over 90% of the drive-ins closing. Today, there are 9 drive-ins still in operation in Alabama.
