The El Portal Theatre in Los Angeles, California was recently featured in Episode 20, Season 2 of the Lethal Weapon TV show. The episode was entitled “Jesse’s Girl.” Roger Murtaugh’s daughter Riana was watching a movie with her new boyfriend inside the theater. They also showed the marquee outside. According to the theater’s website, they no longer show movies there. It’s all live shows now.
The Jubilee Drive-In is open for the 2017 season! They had a free movie “Sing” from last Christmas on Thursday, June 8th, 2017, and they had “The Fate of the Furious” scheduled for Friday, June 9th and Saturday, June 10th, 2017.
I checked the “Mike Rivest Ultimate List of Movie Theaters” site, and two other drive-in theaters were listed for Lamesa, Texas besides the Sky-Vue. The Yucca Drive-In on the Big Springs Highway had the year range ?1950-?1975 listed. The Fiesta Drive-In didn’t have an address listed, but the year range ?1961-?1975 was included. I searched old Topo Maps and found the Yucca Drive-In but not the Fiesta. Where is the Alco store located?
