The theatre was located on Biscayne Boulevard at 183rd Street. This area is now known as Aventura. Not to be confused with the Boulevard Theatre, later known as the Pussycat.

The Golden Glades drive in was HUGE! I remember it spanning quite a bit of property. If memory serves me right, I believe the entrance was on Red Road 57th Avenue and it went west almost to the big curve where the Palmetto Expressway becomes a north south highway. The last movie I ever saw there was MASH and Marriage of a Young Stockbroker with Richard Benjamin. Not sure of that title, because that was quite a while ago. I remember that theatre had a playground where the kids could play while the adults watched the movies. That was the last time I was there, but it certainly was a very big theatre. I think it boasted 2 screens, but I can’t swear to that, I am sure Al will remember!!!

The Golden Glades Drive-In did indeed have two screens; one on opposite ends of the property parallel to the Palmetto. My father used to take us there quite frequently. Saw MASH and Tora Tora Tora during that time. Later as a teenager I used to sneak into the drive-in frequently via the house adjacent to the property (had a friend who lived there). Saw The Omen, Lipstick, and Star Wars more times than I care to count during this time.

The property now sits on a self storage lot…

Have vague memories of the Boulevard Drive-In. Don’t think I ever saw a movie there…

POLICE SEEK CLUES IN SECOND BREAK-IN AT DRIVE-IN

Miami Herald, The (FL) – August 11, 1983
Author: Herald Staff

A half-eaten hot dog that someone left behind during a
break-in at the concession stand of the Boulevard Drive-In , 14301 Biscayne Blvd., attracted a large scorpion that nearly stung a member of the theater’s cleaning crew Saturday, police said.

Police said North Miami Beach Officer Theodore Miller, who responded to the burglary report, killed the scorpion.

Police said someone entered the concession stand between 2 and 11 a.m. The intruder broke the locks on the refrigerator, freezer and cabinets but took nothing.

The burglars did eat several hot dogs that had been left out but dropped one on the floor, police said. That attracted the scorpion.

A similar break-in occurred at the theater two months ago, police said.

Who is stupid enough to leave a half-eaten hot dog in a crime scene? You’ll get caught easier that way.

That aerial shows the screen facing away from Biscayne Boulevard, allowing for x-rated material without too much controversy.

If it was still open today FIU might have something to say.

I actually went there during the adult film tenure with my then-girlfriend because we thought it might be fun to watch the flick and do it in the car. Instead, we were so bored with what was being shown that we went on home. No handi-wipe either!

The location is now a Costco warehouse.
