From Helen Talton's family photo collection here's an interesting pic to see! Pictured here are children playing out in the yard with the Scott Drive-In's original marquee in the background. This was taken at the family's house that sat in the middle of the fork between Scott Blvd and Church St. Photo is from 1957. Thanks to Helen Talton for finding this!
Thanks to Tommy Holcombe for sending this in.

-Pictured here is Helen Talton's mother standing out in the yard with part of the Scott Drive-In off in the background. This photo was taken at the family's house that sat in the fork between Scott Blvd and Church St. Note that the structure to the right of the lady is a billboard and not the main marquee for the drive-in. I'm not 100% sure but I think they may have used this billboard to advertise upcoming attractions for the Scott Drive-In. This image is from the 50's. I had this copied off from a photo slide so that's why the quality is very clear being a color photo from the 50's! Thanks to Helen Talton for finding this image!
Pictured here is the little dollhouse that sat out behind the marquee at the Scott Drive-In. The building was actually a storage shed but it looked like a little mansion. This is where they stored the letters to change out the marquee. This was a neat little landmark there at the Scott! Photo is from the 50's. Thanks to Helen Talton for finding this image!

Tommy Holcombe sent this photo in and it's a great picture..
Pictured here is longtime Decatur resident Helen Talton on her bicycle with the Scott Drive-In's original marquee in the background. Notice how Scott Boulevard was two laned back then. This photo was taken probably somewhere around the 1960's. Thanks to Helen Talton for finding this image!
Enjoy! Tommy Holcombe
Thanks Tommy and special thanks to Helen Talton for sharing her photo with us.
Special note: I will find the year and what's on the marquee, just need some time.

Here's something you might enjoy adding to the Scott Drive-In's website!I got from the Georgia DOT. Enclosed here are two aerial view pics of the Scott Drive-In from 1974. One being an aerial view of the whole drive-in, the other being a zoom up from the same picture of the second marquee that stood at the Scott. I figured you might enjoy adding these to the collection there on the site! Well have a great one my friend and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

When the Scott Drive-In closed The Gwinnett Drive-In needed a new marquee, so they were happy to get, all they had to do is change the word Scott to Gwinnett .
Comment from Tommy Holcombe
When the Scott Drive-In closed in 1977 they actually moved there newer marquee to the Gwinnett Drive-In that was located in Norcross, GA. Enclosed here are some pics that I took of the newer marquee when it stood at the Gwinnett Drive-In. Pics are from 1979. If anyone out there has any pics of this same sign when it stood at the Scott Drive-In please send them into this site!
Thanks!!! Tommy Holcombe
