I live in Everett and LIVE for the movies (especially the old ones) and I hope this Drive-In NEVER closes because the Drive-In theater is the LAST remaining part of Americana from the past! Ironically, I’ve never been to this drive-in, but then I have a pretty good excuse: I don’t own a car!
I used to go to the old Aurora Drive-In LOTS as a youth. Today, at it it’s very location is a Sam’s Club! (like we need more outlet stores) LONG LIVE THE AMERICAN DRIVE-IN!
I saw every BIG movie of my youth at this GREAT theater. The first two SUPERMAN films (the line for SUPERMAN II was so long it went around the corner!) and the first two STAR TREK films, yes, this is where I saw ST: THE WRATH OF KHAN! (RIP Ricardo Montalban)
Also saw THE GALAXY EXPRESS/POPEYE here in 1980 and NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN in 1983!
For me, this theater had all the CHARM in the world!
I saw more movies at the old Aurora Cinema than any other theater in Seattle! Back in 1981 (when movies were still worth going to) I must have seen 10 movies that year alone at the AC! It’s funny some people don’t care for this theater because I thought it was a COOL theater! In 1987, I saw PREDATOR 3 times there!
