Bill Wilson opened the Tiger Drive-In in 1954 with two of his family members, which he later bought out. Bill ran the drive-in for years with his wife Louise. Sherryl Major, daughter of those original owners, says her great grandfather Jesse Shirley won the land the drive-in sits on in a poker game with Native Americans in 1816. The drive-in was closed in the mid 1980’s and it was reopened in 2004.
Parking is first come, first served. Movie-goers can grab a bite to eat at the grill, before cozying up for the film.
The Tiger-Drive in has three restored, vintage campers equipped with queen or full beds, heating and air conditioning, linens, a refrigerator, coffee maker and a private area or deck for viewing movies. All three campers can be booked on Airbnb for $99 plus a $45 cleaning fee and include two movie passes.
You can also stay overnight at the theater in your RV or tent camp for $20 a night. Overnight guests have access to a bathroom, shower and BBQ grill. Visitors looking to camp nearby can stay at Black Rock Mountain State Park less than 20 minutes up the road.
