Charro Drive-in Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The 550 car Charro Drive-In opened in 1949. Closed for a short time between 1970 and 1972. Closed for good in 1975. Played adult movies between 1973 and 1975.

It was demolished and a Builders Square was built on the site. That has also closed.

Was originally operated by Ezell & Assoc. and later by Publix.
Any further information or corrections on this theatre would be appreciated.
