Having been born and living in South Ft Mitchell, KY (from 1949-1956), I can vividly recall many trips with my family to the beautiful ‘Florence Drive-In! I have been searching the web for ANY images of this theater, but have found absolutely NOTHING of importance. PLEASE, if knows of, or has any old photos to share … I am sure that the original resident fans and other drive-in theater enthusiasts nationwide would LOVE enjoying and sharing those images. These photographs would be of great historical reference. Please consider ~ Thanks!

I worked there and a few times at the Dixie Gardens Drive-In in 1970-1971. They were owned by the same company. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of either place.
