Dixie Drive-In

The Dixie Drive-In was opened in 1949 and closed in 1979. It mostly ran first-runs. It was located in an area of unincorporated Miami-Dade County, south of Miami and north of Homestead. The area is now divided in East Perrine, West Perrine and Palmetto Bay.

In 1950 it parked 500 cars and as stated above by 1975 it was still 500 cars. In 1956 it was owned by the DIXIE DRIVE-IN THEATRES.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is now occupied by a shopping plaza anchored by Publix.

Here is a 1969 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

Comparing the historic photos, including those linked to in previous comments, to Google Street View and Satellite images, it seems only the Texaco gas station building remains, but has been converted into a Starbucks. The tall Texaco sign and poles holding it up are gone. The long rectangular piece of vacant land behind the Starbucks/former gas station that had been adjacent to the drive-in is mostly still vacant.
