Drive-in movies ceased in 1984 (second-run 99 cent admission by then), but the Lake Shore (two words) site remained home to the Lake Shore Motel (guests once had free access to movies) and Margate Swap Shop (smaller complement to Henn’s Sunrise Blvd. colossus). Margate’s Community Redevelopment Agency acquired the property in 2006, as part of the Margate Town Center redevelopment corridor.

Primary memory: an early 70s revival of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” crammed onto the Lake Shore’s tiniest screen (of corrugated metal).

UA would open an eightplex around the corner a couple years later (Movies at Margate, itself long since demolished for a Wal*Mart).
