Hallandale Drive-In

The Hallandale Drive-In was one of the earlier drive-in theatres to open in the Miami area. It opened on June 11, 1948, screening the 1947 action movie “Michigan Kid” and the second feature was the 1948 comedy “If You Knew Susie”. The drive-in opened with a 500 car capacity and RCA in-a-car speakers. Walter Colby (dba Hallandale Drive-In Inc.) opened the drive-in. Later on in 1951, it was operated by S. Arthur Ashworth and ABC Theatrical Enterprises. The last owner was Sherwin Grossman, who sold the Hallandale Drive-In to the Hollywood Greyhound Track. They wanted it to use it as a parking lot for their track.

The Hallandale Drive-In closed for good in April of 1963. Grossman wanted to expand his horizons by becoming involved in building and operating TV stations in South Florida.
