The Golden Glades Drive-In closed on March 14, 1981. It’s final features were FROM NOON TILL THREE with THE STRANGER RETURNS and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE with POINT OF TERROR.

Al, I believe the intention is to help people understand where the drive-in once used to be, using the best possible current address information.

Miami Gardens did not exist when this theatre was in operation.

According to the grand opening ad posted by Mike Rivest, the drive-in was located on NW 167th St & 34th Ave, which is consistent with the Miami Gardens address, and not was not in North Miami Beach.

3383 NW 167th St, Miami Gardens, FL 33056

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. The street address in the current heading is correct, but the town and zip code throw off the mapping on Google Earth.

If drive-ins weren’t bad enough, this one was located smack dab next to the Palmetto Expressway where the traffic runs east and west, the same direction that both screens were positioned. Since there were no trees to mask the headlights of passing cars it was sometimes difficult to see the bright scenes in a movie, let alone the dark ones. I still don’t know the hell Gregory Peck saw in the open coffin in The Omen.

“Star Wars” had a six-week run here during June-July 1977.
