USA Dead End Drive-In Theater May 2016

Recommended Posts

OK now onto the place which was by far and away the most unexpected find of my trip.

 

We were driving towards another explore when we remembered that nearby was an old drive-in movie site so we decided to swing by and snap a few shots as there were apparently a couple of the old screens left. So we parked up and made our way onto the expanse of tarmac that once served as the parking lot, now all overgrown with trees and bushes. We were casually snapping away, taking photos of the two big screens (the third, largest, screen came down in a storm a few years ago) and the old speaker mounts which looked like strange alien probes growing out of the tarmac when I noticed a single storey building covered in graffiti so decided to investigate. In the style of the best clickbait journalism around, you'll never believe what we found...

OK enough of the dull part...I poked my head into the building I had spotted and immediately called my friend over, because what I had just seen I couldn't quite take in. We quickly decided to run back to the car and grab our tripods and also my friend's girlfriend who was waiting for us to return so we could show her as well. So with our proper gear and other person in tow we went back...

So that's two projectors right, but this particular establishment had three screens didn't it?

 

So shouldn't there be a third?

 

Oh yes, there was. And it was even more awesome than the other two.

In all my seven years of exploring I have never been so surprised by a location before. Nobody bothers to explore this place as it simply looks like a boring empty space. Apart from a hole in the roof the room with the older projector inside has been completely untouched since the place closed in the 1990s.

 

It just goes to show no matter what a site looks like from the outside you should never write it off...

Quite amazing those projectors are still there!

 

Isn't it just, considering it's been closed almost two decades. I think my exact words when my friend said to me 'there are projectors in here too' were 'like f**k are there'....

That's fucking sweet. Love the old arcade machines and the projectors! Also noticed a village of the damned posted on the side, quite apt :D

       friend and I have been talking for a while about doing a ghost hunt.  So we finally went out and did our first one.  I had explored here almost a year earlier to the day.  My friend, JPVideos, has also been here prior and had a paranormal experience.  So we figured this would be a good place to stat our new series.

      Hey Everyone! Welcome to my very first Urbex..! My group and I went to these houses south of Atlanta that have been abandoned for a few years now. Unfortunately, they are going to be torn down soon, so anyone who may want to visit them, DM me ASAP! Anyway, The first house we went to was just empty and peaceful. The second house, not so much... We found graffiti telling us to leave; we should have listened. We stepped into the garage of the house and saw blood on the floor, and drag marks leading to the attic. Not wanting to see a dead body, we left. We're planning on going back to the attic soon in daylight. The third house was almost worse. We found some evidence that a serious crime may have happened there, as well as a swastika and a Confederate flag. We left without exploring too much of that house. On our way out, one of my friends looked back at the top floor of the house and saw someone in the window. We left quickly. I hope you guys like the pictures, some of them may be NSFW, the swastika. Otherwise, have a great day everyone! Be safe!

      First Post Guys! Anyways, my group of friends and I found an abandoned Gas Station south of Atlanta. Apparently, the gas station went bankrupt due to the county screwing them over. A new highway system was out in, and the road to the gas station was relocated, so in order to get to the station, one would have to travel a good 5 minutes out of their way. Not worth it. So the station closed down and now it looks like this. May go back to take more pictures soon, stay posted. Have a great day guys, and be safe!

      It's been months sense I got out and explored an abandoned location.  There wasn't much left here, but it still felt great to be back on that horse again.
