Miami Open Air Drive-In

The Miami Drive-In was opened prior to 1955 by Alliance Theater Corp. The drive-in was owned by S.J. Gregory in the 1960’s. Capacity was 500 cars. It was demolished in the mid-1980’s.

In 2012 the indoor Roxy Theatre was built on part of the site, opening in May 2012. (It has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The Miami Open Air was located Northeast of Peru at 864 North Broadway. It had a capacity of 500 cars, a playground, separate concession stand, dual speaker audio poles, and beveled parking for better views. It had a slightly larger and wider screen than the Peru Drive In had, and was last painted in a teal paint scheme. The theater had literally faded from glory as lighting from the city of Peru made the area too bright for the outdoor movies. New pictures of the Old Peru Drive in are now available on the Peru Drive in page. We are still trying to obtain photos of the old Miami Drive in, and the old Indian Head neon work.

The Roxy 5 Theater (indoor) has been built on part of the site, so movies continue to be screened there.
