Ilha Auto Cine Drive-In

There are not too many drive-in theaters in Brazil, that I have seen anyway. This one was near Rio’s Galeao International Airport, at a beach-side location, just off the Estrada do Galeao. It showed second run American films. It was closed in 2007 with Tom Cuisde in “Lions for Lambs”. It has been demolished.

Heres a website with some pictures of this Drive-In Theater:

The location of this one is labelled as “Praça Oito” on Google Maps. If the above website is talking about the same site then this drive-in opened in 1975 and closed in 2007 with “Lions for Lambs”. This matches up with the images on Google Earth which show the site as demolished after 2007 with what looks like only the screen skeleton remaining. Also the entrance/exit appears to be bricked up with a wall. I think this should be changed to closed and demolished.

Here is the location on Google Earth.

Totally demolished. Not even the ramps remain.

Capacity was 400 according to the site in the first comment, after looking at the photos I’m sure its the same location – the soccer(?) courts next door are still there.
