“One of the last remaining outdoor Driveins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

A dieing American attraction, the Swan Drive in in Blue Ridge GA runs first run movies all summer. Enjoy the crisp Mountain Air and memories of being a child going to the movies with parents and later High School friends.

“Wonderful Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Drove to the mountains of Georgia (from the Mississippi Gulf Coast) for some downtime! Found the Swan while looking for a new experience!! What a great evening it turned out to be! We bundled up and put the convertible top down! We feasted on "fair food" :) corn dogs, funnel cakes, and hot chocolate! The staff was Awesome! Friendly and talkative... they even offered some young talent in the snack bar during intermission...a young man with a guitar serenaded us while we waited on our fried concoctions! I highly recommend a night at the SWAN! Our car delivered surround sound....the screen was vivid and bright.... NOTHING negative to report!

“Fun Date Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Great place! Well taken care of - grounds and facilities kept up well. Food and drinks are VERY reasonable compared to theaters and you can even bring your own food if you want.

Since it's not in a large city, you get a good view of the night sky on a clear night. Bring your convertible for sure!

For a treat try the fried OREOs - had never had one and these were a great sinful splurge!

Worth a visit if you are in the area!
