1201 NW 42nd Ave, Miami, FL 33126

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. The address currently in the heading is off by almost 4 miles to the northeast.

Here is a 1961 aerial photo of the drive-in, which shows the fence bisecting the drive-in through the middle of the lot.

Here is a 1969 higher resolution close-up photo.

You can see there were separate entrances and ticket offices for the east side and west side of the lot.

Nice work Chuck. Good information can be found by using Google’s search engine, and with the right combination of words, you can discover a bunch of information through blogs, facebook postings, news stories, and history sites.

The truth is out there!

Not every drive-in made it into the encyclopedias, almanacs, and catalogs. Some slipped through the cracks, especially the ones in very rural areas.

This drive-in was open at least as early as 1967, and probably even sooner. The 1969 opening date in the heading is incorrect.

Just noticed a typo in the heading, “also known as Fanily Drive-In.”

The drive-in property itself is occupied by The Oaks At Normandy Apartments, a Publix is built on the propery which fronted between the drive-in and the Normandy Blvd.

NYozoner commented about Atlantic Drive-In on Jan 26, 2011 at 5:37 am

5854 Atlantic Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which operated from 1939-75.

The drive-in was known as the Jacksonville Drive-In from 1939-45, so an “also known as” should be added to the heading.

NYozoner commented about Citrus Drive-In on Jan 25, 2011 at 11:49 am

1155 N Florida Ave, Hernando, FL 34442

The mapping will work with either Inverness or Hernando, as long as the 3442 zip code is used. The drive-in was about midway between both towns.

NYozoner commented about Citrus Drive-In on Jan 25, 2011 at 11:45 am

1155 N Florida Ave, Inverness, FL 34442

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is vaguely visible using Google Earth historic aerial imagery. You can make out the shape of the parking area, and the entrance/exit driveways are easy to spot.

The earliest aerial photos available for this location are from 1977, and the resolution of the photos was too low to provide conclusive evidence for the drive-in, but the location matches up with exactly with description offered by the local historian below the theatre heading.

U.S. 41 & Winkler Ave is the same as 3920 Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers, FL 33901.

I try to use intersections when practical, since road numbers can sometimes throw of the mapping features on certain mapping websites or programs.
