The Lauderdale Drive-In is already listed in the 1953 Film Daily Yearbook.

Headquarters for the Broward Sheriff’s Office now occupies the former drive-in site.

A Miami News ad in late November 1948 shows it was already in operation then and had possibly just opened.

My family regularly attended the Lauderdale Drive-In during the early 1960s, and it just happens that our church held early Sunday morning services there. I’ve just uploaded four pages of a 1963 tenth-anniversary program commemorating those services.

Naturally, I wish there were more pictures of the drive-in itself, but the last of the four pages does show a portion of the concession stand!

For anyone who might be interested, the complete program is posted at

BTW, the drive-in was in the northwest corner of West Broward Blvd. and 27th Avenue — not Wingate Road.

Also, unfortunately, the status should be “demolished”.
