Fort Pierce Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Drive-In was one of two drive-ins in Fort Pierce, this one was opened around September 1948 under the management of Talgar Theatres. Located south of town on the Dixie Highway, the Fort Pierce Drive-In was still open in 1955. It was later closed and was replaced by an auto dealership.

Oddly enough, as of 2010, the screen was still standing, even though it is mere yards away from the dealership’s offices.

Here are two pictures that I took in May 2011.

Here is a circa 1991 picture of the marquee, which has since been removed.

The car dealership that replaced most of the theater opened in either late 2004 or early 2005 and had already closed by 2011.

The address listed does not map properly. It should be changed to 3588 US 1.

The above is not mapping correctly. It is mapping south of the drive-in. Approx. location for the drive-in was next door to Dixie’s BBQ at 3362 South U.S. Highway 1. if you look south of this address, you will see the building that was the car dealership and THAT SCREEN!

The correct address is 3410 US-1, Fort Pierce, FL. Currently, the property is occupied by CARite of Fort Pierce. Just on the south edge of the property you can clearly see the screen still standing. http://tinyurl.com/gt3yvel

This drive-in was built in 1948, as noted in the July 3 issue of Boxoffice that year:

“FORT PIERCE, FLA. — Ground has been broken on a 500x650 foot plat for a new drive-in to be operated by Talgar Theatre interests. The company is associated with the Koblegard interests here. Sunrise Engineering Co. will supervise the work. W. W. Hatcher is architect. The franchise has been received from Park Theatres, Inc.

“The project will involve an expenditure of approximately $75,000, and be completed early in September.”
