I believe Mike that is why Elias Loew called his company E.M.Loews so the it would not be confused with Marcus Loew’s company,and you are right everyone was not sue-happy back then.Its like the AMC LOEWS theatres. AMC bought the LOEWS “BRAND” as Loews inc. has nothing to do with theatres anymore.Although they are big in Hotels,Oil companys,Insurance,any many other things,no back to the Gulfstream………….!

Just noticed that if you look very closely at the screen (three rows from the top), you can see “E M LOEWS” spelled out.

I suppose if you sat in your motel room you could watch the cars watching the movies?

I know the drive-in was open and owned by E. M. Loew’s Theaters in 1967.

More info or photos?

Thats right Bob, or maybe you saw the movies for free for staying in the Motel.Cross promotion I believe they used to call it.

More info this drive also had a 52 room motel located on both sides of the screen as can be seen in S Porridge post of Jun 29,2009.This site now is the Hallendale Shopping Center.Elias M. Loew 1898-1984 born in Austria, owned at one time 70 movie theatres,17 drive-ins, and a chain of hotels and the Bay State Raceway with a man named Lou Waters.As the header says this drive-in motel operated from 1955 til 1975.
