Well, Perry Highway is US 27, or Apalachee Parkway within city limits.

Need an address or crossroads. More info and photos are always welcome.

Open till ~1975? Can anyone verify the exact date?


1961 Talger Theater

1964 to at least 1967, Kent Theaters of Jacksonville, Fla., Frederick H. Kent, President & Owner, he had 27 theaters in Florida.

I don’t THINK the Parkway was a Drive-In, the only thing I could find was that it was a 5 Screen Multiplex open from 1985-1995.
