LEVINE THEATRICAL ENTERPRISES was the chain for this Drive-In (at least while it was called the Autoport).

If you go to MAP, enlarge it as much as posible and click on SATELLITE or HYBRID you can clearly see the drive-in site just to the left of the arrow. I wonder how old the photo is and if the land has anything on it yet?

This site was redeveloped to a small single family neighborhood a few years ago.
