Was this theatre known at one time as the Hallandale Drive-In and located to the west side of the Hollywood Dog Track?

Ok, I am officially confused. Why does the Gilette Stadium in Massachusetts have to to with a drive in movie theatre and a racetrack that was allegedly located near it in down in Florida??

I have an old movie calendar from a Hallandale Drive-In Theatre and the only indication it gives about location is the following quote: “adjoining the west side of the Hollywood Dog Track”. This is why I asked if anyone knew if this listing is for that same theatre or if there happened to be another Hallendale Drive-In somewhere. If it’s for this one, I’ll post a picture of the calendar.

I think there is some confusion here on the location. I will see it I can figure it out.

Sorry Anthony. Gillette Stadium has nothing to do with drive-ins other than the land where the stadium sits was once the New England Raceway home of sulky racing and owned by E.M. Loews the owner of many theatres and Drive-ins from Maine to Florida. Most of his theatres were 2nd runs including his downtown Boston properties. I’m sorry you go SO UPSET at my original comment so whatever else you think take it and stuff it where the sun don’t shine
