This apparently closed as a Twin, sometimes showing regular films on one screen and porn on the other.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which was in Opa-locka, a northern suburb of Miami. The street address in the heading is correct, but the town and zip code are not correct, and throw off the mapping on Google Earth.

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

Map link above is WAY off. HERE is the 12800 block of NW 27th St. Looks like a big junk yard where the theater probably was.

Looking at historical imagery, there was an old airport just to the South of the drive-in. HERE is what remains of the old runways, still visible today.
