Interesting Palm Beach Post article from late July 2018 about the history of drive-ins in Palm Beach County:

“Drive-in Movie Memories: 71 Years of Double Features and Even Death — Only One Drive-in Remains in Palm Beach County: The Lake Worth Drive-In”

Says the first drive-in in the county was in an empty lot to the west of what is now Palm Beach International Airport and was called the Boulevard after going quasi-nameless for years.

Also that “The Dixie Skydrome, dubbed ‘The South’s Most Beautiful Drive-In Theater,’ [that] opened on North Dixie Highway in Lake Worth in January 1949” and closed in 1978.

I’ve been unable to locate pages on Cinema Treasures for the Dixie Skydrome as well as the Boulevard and the Boynton Outdoor Drive-In Theatre (which the article says appeared only once in the newspaper).

(A photo on the CT page for the Beach Drive-in is of an ad for four of the drive-ins in the article.)

The article includes photos, links to other articles about Palm Beach County cinemas, and ends with a list of the remaining drive-ins in Florida.

When did the name Change from Trail Drive-in to Lake Worth Drive-in? Does Lake Worth have the same name origin as Fort Worth, Texas?

This is now known as the Lake Worth SwapShop and Drive-In Theatre, by the same owners as the SwapShop (/theaters/10592/)
