Oh that is wonderful news.

The Ocala is one of the lucky winners from projectdrivein. ‘How sweet it is’ for the new owners to be able to convert to digital.

I lived here from 1949-1960. My dad was Ray Rogers who was the manager of the theatre under Ira Dyer and then Carl Howell. We lived inside the screen apt for a several years and then we moved into the house directly behind the drive-in parking lot. (not there anymore) I now live in Albany, Ky. I have such wonderful memories of the theatre, and am so glad it is still going strong. LONG LIVE OCALA DRIVE-IN !!!

Just an update thought anyone who has been long awaiting the Ocala Drive-In re-opening as long as I have may want to know that I happened to find. A grand opening date on the drive-in.com website today of July 29th. No other info as far as what the movies will be that day.

Just listened to their message today. Still being remodeled. No projected opening date on message.

I didn’t include “lost” because he is no longer on CT. Hated to see Lost go,but i am sure he had his reasons.

The Ocala Drive-In is still being remodeled, but should be ready to open by June 2011. Please call them at 352-629-1325 to keep abreast of the actual opening date. They’re putting a tremendous amount of work into restoring the old drive-in and it should be pretty terrific once they’re ready.

Chuck AND Lost Memory though LM (Ken) doesn’t contribute to CT anymore and it is our great loss to this theatre site.

Hey, Lost Memory. I think I saw that drive-in still standing while I was traveling towards Orlando and on the way back home. It was right on US 301/441. I’ll check if it got demolished or if it’s still standing when I get a chance to go there. I’ll let you know.

Patsy on March 3, 2010 at 9:29 am

It looked that way with many tall weeds in sight though the screen is still there along with the drive-through ticket kios.

Patsy on March 3, 2010 at 7:47 am

Chuck: I was recently in FL and happen to see this drive-in on 441 though wasn’t sure if it was still an operating drive-in. I think it is being used for a flea market now.

Here is an October 2007 article about the closing, along with another photo.
