Did “BOMBS” have a different meaning in the early sixties?

Having lived here in Oakland Park (north Lauderdale) since 1955, I can vividly recall occasional trips with my family (and later into the 1970’s with car-fulls of my best friends) to the classic ‘Davie Boulevard Drive-In’ theater (although, the ‘Federal’ and ‘North Andrews’ Drive-Ins were a bit closer to my area)! I remember it being a very clean and well-maintained theater … it even had an outdoor seating area next to the concession stand (similar to that of the ‘North Andrews Drive-In’). During the early 1970' the theater (specifically) would host all-night “Dusk-to-Dawn Horror-thons” and “Sci-Fi” features on most weekends … we had a blast! 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 These photographs would be of great historical reference.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!
