International Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the center of Bayamon, Puerto Rico’s second largest city, this was a favorite for families living in San Juan and Bayamon. Cars driving by would always catch a glimpse of the movie playing. Its biggest years of popularity ocurred during the 1960’s when it played second run movies.

Its location in the middle of the city was a deciding factor in its closing since the real estate value of the area climbed immensely.

The International closed down in the early 1970’s and was torn down to make space for retail shops.

PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS TO:

DAVILA, BAYAMON, PURETO RICO, 00950

State Road #2 on the Map shows the Southern United States and Central America. PR-2 would have at least got it on the correct road.

Anyone have more info or photos?

JJ: The drive-in in Carolina was called the 65th Infantry Drive-In, since it was located on 65 de InfanteriĀ­a Avenue. It was owned by Wometco Commonwealth.
