Opened March 23, 1956 serving the then-new suburban communities in Northeast Broward, the Gold Coast Drive-In reportedly accommodated 400 cars. The roadside marquee facing U.S. 1 featured an amusing cartoon gnome, pointing a star-topped neon wand toward the entrance.
Two indoor "mini theaters" were carved out in the base of the drive-in screen by the early-1970’s (when the Ultra-Vision Twin opened nearby). Closed Thanksgiving weekend 1978 to make way for the Rivertowne Square shopping center which was built in 1979.
