In Lakeland, Florida is the Silver Moon Drive-in Theatre. A real roadside find, the Silver Moon's screen tower is very unique.

A drive-in that has caught the Y2K frenzy is Pinellas Park. The ticket booth is fresh off a gondola ride with a wide wingspan to boot.

This drive-in, originally called the Stereo Drive-in, is open seasonally. Currently, the theatre shows religious themed movies and accepts donations for attendees. Many thanks to Budd Ballard for info.

Below are more photos of the Pinellas Park Drive-in Theatre. Unfortunately, the drive-in is now demolished.


UPDATE 06/04 : In 2002 this drive-in movie theater succumbed to development, and now a brand new Walmart Supercenter stands in its place. Many thanks to Brian Koepnick for this update. 06-04
