Here’s an article from the Orlando Sentinel when The Boulevard Drive-in closed in 1993: http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1993-08-12/news/9308110811_1_boulevard-drive-in-screen-operators

Based on this the last two movies shown were “No Where to Run” and “Dracula”. For me the last movie I saw there in high school was “Soap Dish”. Also based on the article it indicates the reason for it closing was “the screen was torn during a storm that caused extensive damage in the area in March (1993). Floyd Theaters officials had considered costs for repairing the screen before deciding against continuing the operation.”

I moved away from the area about the time they closed. I’m glad my daughter was old enough to be able to remember how much fun it was to go there. We’d pack a picnic & made an evening of it when she was 4 & 5. It’s a shame they closed. I have a lot of happy memories of that place.
