Now a large development with a Pavilions and a Staples. You can see on Google Maps where the screen was – at the bottom right corner of the lot.
It must’ve been just a couple of doors down from the Loma. Both are now gone, swallowed up by tacky condos.
Now for sale for $6.5 million: View link
Now a pretty little avocado green strip mall.
Demolished; now a Ford dealership.
Now a huge housing development with streets named after universities.
Just around the corner from Edwards Brea Stadium Cinemas, this address is nothing but new houses now.
Also known as the Brawley Drive-In. Now operating as the Frye Chapel and Mortuary (a great double-bill).
It’s a church, but it doesn’t look as if they’ve inhabited the shell of the theatre. It just looks like a regular church – possibly the Rio has been demolished and the church rose up in its place.
An empty lot now for sale: View link
Now a housing development tract, the outline of which is fairly close to the boundaries of the old drive-in.
The lot on which the Bell once sat is now a boatyard.
Apparently the BarLen had a playground beneath the screen.
Now operating as the Eden Flooring Company.
Judging from maps, the current tenant is Optimum Technical Services.
Currently enjoying retirement as the Bakersfield RV Resort.
There should indeed be an a.k.a. for Dean’s Arcadia Theatre. The address of the Arcadia was 34 East Huntington Drive.
This is the multiplex in question: /theaters/32498/
What an insanely beautiful old dump!

City name should be changed to its correct spelling, “San Diego”.
With additional reporting by MagicLantern. Blah.
Now a Cinemark property.
Definitely a four-screen theatre – more than 700 seats, too!
