Rutherford County will soon have a new drive-in movie theater. WGNS last reported on this story in 2013, so we thought we would do a follow up after receiving calls from residents asking, "What is under construction in the area of Florence Road?"
The Mars Dine-in / Drive-in Theater is under construction now. David Stansberry told WGNS in a past interview that the drive-in will sit on roughly a 25-acre site that was once home to a boat factory. Stansberry told us that he always loved the property...
A potential opening date for the family venue is projected to be May 16, 2014.
