This drive-in closed before 1981; when Stewart & Everett closed the Cinema (later Galaxy Theatre) downtown in 1981 there were no other theaters operating in Martin County.

I think this Drive-In Theater is on 64 Alt which may have been part of Hwy 17 it maps as 2000 W Main St. It is now a storage unit rental place the screen and ticket booth still exist. The bottom of the screen has been turned into storage units. They built concrete block storage unit buildings in the back of the lot. There is a concrete slab roughly 50yds from the screen this was either the project booth or it was a projection concession stand and if that’s the case it must have been a walk up window. If someone could talk the owner into leasing what’s left of the lot there might be enough space for about 50-75 cars.
