NYozoner commented about Golden Glades Twin Drive-In on Jan 27, 2011 at 4:33 pm

3383 NW 167th St, Miami Gardens, FL 33056

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. The street address in the current heading is correct, but the town and zip code throw off the mapping on Google Earth.

12850 NW 27th Ave, Opa-locka, FL 33054

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which was in Opa-locka, a northern suburb of Miami. The street address in the heading is correct, but the town and zip code are not correct, and throw off the mapping on Google Earth.

Something wacky is going on with this address, as there was no drive-in at that location in the 1961 aerial photos. Does anyone have an idea what side street was closest to this drive-in, on NW 27th Avenue?

There definitely was no drive-in located on the 6000 block of NW 27th Avenue, according to the 1961 aerial photos.

17175 NW 27th Ave, Miami Gardens, FL 33056

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which was in Miami Gardens near the Miami-Dade County line. While the street address in the heading is correct, the town and zip code is not.

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

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.

NYozoner commented about Family Twin Drive-In on Jan 27, 2011 at 4:06 am

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

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.
