Two south Florida drive-ins stay popular

View from the bridge on Lake Ave, Lake WorthTired of all the digital conversion articles? Then you’ll love this piece from the Sun Sentinel, which is a classic example of the “Hey, we still have some drive-ins around, and they are so cool” kind of article. Not one word about that 2013 thing.

There’s a photo of the Swap Shop (Lake Worth) with an amazing amount of background light; can those folks really see the movie? Just to make things confusing, the other drive-in is also called the Swap Shop, but it’s in Lauderhill (according to the article) or Fort Lauderdale (according to Google Maps and Drive-Ins.com). The Google Maps link shows the Swap Shop in its midday flea market glory, but check all those long-shadowed screens at the perimeter. Turns out that there are 14 screens at that one location!

Be sure and check out the photo gallery that accompanies the article.
