My wife and I moved to San Juan Capistrano in the summer of 1984. We went to the drive-in a couple of times and I have fond memories of watching the movie in a little Fiat X1/9 with the top off, munching on “enhanced” tollhouse cookies. But those memories don’t include what the movies were!

I do remember that the lot was about ½ full on Friday and Saturday night.

The loss of the theater and the nursery that was behind it really made a big difference in the feel of the town. It felt much more “developed” and, of course, has only gotten more so over the years.
