E.M. Loews theatres were headquarted in Boston. The RaceTrack somebody mentioned is now home of Gillette Stadium, home of he Great New England Patriots and the New England Revolution.

The Hallandale Drive-In was located at 831 North Federal Highway from 1949 to 1964.

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

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.

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.

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?

You have better eyes than me S Porridge,I had to put on my glasses to see it.Thanks.

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

Interesting photo of the Screen and motel S Porridge,pretty cool!Good find, no mention of the motel in the header on this page.

Scroll halfway down this page for a postcard view (curious bit of architecture):

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………….!

It is a wonder someone didn’t sue someone.sadly,today I bet that would happen. Thanks Alalvarez and Tlsloews.

And no Mike,Elias and Marcus were not related either.Would like to see photos of the Gulfstream Drive-in.

AlAlvarez on June 28, 2010 at 10:37 pm

Mike, it was a separate chain operated out of Boston by a man named Elias M. Loew.
