| Street View

The Sevon Drive-In was located on Old US 17 in between the towns of Sebring and Avon Park; its name was a portmanteau of the two towns. While the shape of the drive-in is visible in aerial photographs, nearly nothing remains at eye-level. The property is now used to store tractor trailers.

This area is surrounded by orange groves. It must have been a real treat to watch a movie while the orange blossoms were in bloom.

My 1956 Motion picture Almanac has it located in Sebring.Flordia.Andy, it parked 264 cars and was owned by Carl Floyd which i bet was part of Floyd Theatres located all over Flordia.

That should be Old US 27. My mistake. I guess it could’ve been in Sebring. I’m not sure where the city limits begin and end.

It was located on Alt 27, but the little road that ran behind the theater may be 17. The photo you have above is a little building that was on that road. It was a small store once upon a time. It was one of Floyd enterprises theaters. I lived inside in the back in a mobile home believe it or not. We got our mail at the Sebring post office, but my sisters and I went to school in Avon Park.

after messing with the photo above, I can identify it as the end of the triangle where Alt 27 and the small road behind the theater met.
