1 person favorited this theater
Listed in city directories as open in 1951 – but possibly built in the late 1940’s – this theatre had a capacity for 500 cars and was operated by Pacific. It was named the Cinema Bar at one point, and was listed at 224 Barkla, a street which later became known as Harvard.
Pacific Theatres gave up the ghost on this one in the 1970’s after an unsuccessful attempt at programming Spanish-language films to draw in the migrant demographic of Santa Paula. Eventually destroyed, condominiums and a mini-mall on this spot have completely erased any hint that there might have ever been a drive-in in this eastern portion of Ventura County.
