The Marquee At The Fox Drive-In From 1979...

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Drive-in theatre off Normandy Boulevard and I-295 in Jacksonville, Florida. Started life as one screen but twinned around 1976. An Eastern Federal drive-in as far as I know.

All I did there was keep the booth equipment up and running when I worked for eastern federal corp. back in the early 80’s and thats when the midway twin drive in by eastern federal was also still open before the walmart !&#*%^ land grabbers got a hold of it.Boy those were the days or well nights actually.

Harvey, cool marquee picture and theatre ads. Until only the last couple of years, you could see the drive-in parking spots w/ poles from the back of the trailer park next to where the theatre was located. As a child I remember seeing “Walt Disney’s Snow White” there. In my teens, I saw “Rollercoaster” there on my first drive-in movie date with a girl.

To give credit where credit is due, a gentlemen named Tommy Holcombe contributed that picture to drive-ins.com. It’s the only picture of the Fox marquee I’ve been able to find.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

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.
