Owned by Dick Guidry

Held 500 cars

May have got its name from the JETS that flew in and out of the U.S. Naval Air Station New Orleans at Belle Chase just accross Lake Salvador from Cut Off?

Need an address, more info and photos.

The above address will map to the location of the drive-in. The drive-in is vaguely visible using Google Earth.

Now an empty field. A residence is in front of the property.

The address for this Drive-in is 15390 W Main St, Cut Off, LA 70345.

Please update.

The name ‘Jet’ came about because Lefty Cheramie and Dick Guidry wanted a modern name that was short because neon was expensive. They opened the drive in in 1952 and I believe the screen came down around 1983. I would be happy to answer any questions about the Jet Drive-in or Jet Cinema. I am Dick Guidry’s oldest.
