Now a pretty little avocado green strip mall.
Demolished; now a Ford dealership.
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).
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!
Also sometimes cited as being at 519 A Street.
Built in 1910 and located at C & Fifth Streets, per http://tinyurl.com/ykjzt6c
This was a drive-in that had a lot of gang problems in the mid- to late-‘80s; it closed sometime around 1988 or so. The city has always had some kind of low-income housing planned for the spot but it’s never happened. You can still drive by and see where the rise and fall of the land for the cars is, some struts and supports of the old ozoner, and there are holes in the fence for the more intrepid photographers amongst us.

Insanely expensive ticket prices (on par with the Arclight in Hollywood), but also some of the most insanely comfortable theatre seats anywhere in Southern California.
