The Delray Drive-in was located on busy US 1 in Delray Beach. If it was anything like most Florida drive-ins, the Delray Drive-In likely closed between 1975 and 1990. Google Maps shows the lot as vacant, but street view shows a construction fence around the lot. While the theater had been gone for years, a palm-lined driveway remained until the very end.

A flea market and (IIRC) a few permanent shops helped keep the Delray Drive-In solvent. In the years after the theatre closed and the land was cleared for redevelopment (apparently stalled in the economic downturn), it was redubbed “Delray’s Lost Drive-In Flea Market.”

As with most South Florida drive-ins, the Delray went from first-run features (as Mike Rogers noted with the day-and-date to the Ultravision further south) to second-run, buck-or-two admission status in its later years

Slight revision to comment above: Between the theatre’s closing and its clearing for redevelopment (apparently stalled in the economic downturn), it was redubbed “Delray’s Lost Drive-In Flea Market.”
