The Merritt Island Drive-In Opened Its Doors On June 5th, 1952 And I Cannot Find The Opening Attraction To This According To The Miami Herald. By Late Summer Of 1954, It Became The Cocoa Drive-In Only For A Bit More Than 5 Years Before Changing The Name Back To The Merritt Island Drive-In For The Rest Of The Theater’s Life, And Was Also Used For Church Serves As Well. It Is Either Closed In Either Late 1967 Or Early 1968.
