You should try copying them from Drive-ins.com. You have a better chance of getting an address and/or timeline.

Doesn’t look like the Park is listed on that site, only the Dixie.

Take whatever they have that includes an address or some kind of timeline. There must be alot of drive-ins listed there that are missing from this site.

Looks like there was a drive-in on S. Ferdon Boulevard just north of I-10. That area’s all big box stores and strip centers and has been since at least 1999.

I found two drive-ins on the 1956 aerial photos, one to the south of Crestview on S Ferdon Blvd and the other to the west on W James Lee Blvd. Not sure which one in the Park and which one is the Dixie, hoping maybe someone here can shed some light.

The drive-in to the south is definitely the larger of the two, so if I went by car size, the bigger one to the south would have been the Park, and the smaller one to the west would have been the Dixie. But that would just be a guess, and I’d like to have something more solid to go by.

I believe the Dixie was the one North of I-10. On my trips to Pensacola I turned left at Crestview heading to I10 and I would pass a drive in. When they played Gone with the Wind, all the marquee had was GWTW on it.
