27th Avenue Drive-In marquee

Opened on May 27, 1950, Wometco Theatres 27th Avenue Drive-In was located on NW 87th Street. This drive in was quite unique in it’s day, being the only drive-in in Miami that had air conditioning. Other than the air-conditioning, there was nothing special about this theatre. It was closed in 1986. The screen was demolished in 2001.

The Wometco 27th Avenue Drive-in was one of the longest lasting in South Florida. It was already open by 1957 and closed in 1986, outlasted by the Tropicaire and Turnpike.

Here is a 1980 aerial photo. It looks like they are using the space for retail now.
