As founder of the Southern California Drive-In Movie Society (SoCal D.I.M.S.), allow me to share bit more about this newly launched group.

In addition to being a member of Cinema Treasures and a host of other online movie theatre discussion groups, it was my membership at Yahoo’s Drive-Ins discussion group that gave me the idea to launch this organization. We have a strong contingent of Southern California based members and I’d always wonder why the SoCal area folks didn’t get together to launch a drive-in club. After 5 years of wondering, I took matters into my own hands.

We officially launched in July 2005 with our first 2 back to back meetings (or, as it’s labeled above, Membership Outreach events) at the Mission Tiki D/I in Montclair, CA. Our last event took place on August 27, 2005 at the Van Buren D/I in Riverside, CA.

Our plan is to have a monthly event at one of the remaining SoCal area D/I’s to show our support for the theatre as well as to recruit new members. We have the support of as well as De Anza Land and Leisure Corp. – the owners of various drive-ins in SoCal and across the country including the Mission Tiki and the Van Buren.

We do not have a website yet but we expect to get one in the near future. Feel free to contact the email address above for more information. We hope you’ll be able to join us on 9/24 at the Vineland or for other events in the future.

One of our SoCal DIMS members posted a letter to the editor in this past Sunday’s Los Angeles Times in response to an article about Texas area drive-ins. It’s a good letter that lets the folks in SoCal know that the drive-in scene is still very much alive and well!

Can anyone help me ? when on holiday in 1992 in Southern California we stopped at a market which was held in a drive in theatre. I noticed that the projection booth’s port holes were just that,I mean ROUND windows.
This place is somewhere between San Diego & the Mexican Border,I have photos and when I find them I’ll paste them on here.
