I can remember this very large drive-in, with its grand marquee at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Ximeno Avenue. It was a large part of the feel of the area, built in the post-WW II boom, many built in mid-century modern “Googie” style.
The Circle Drive-In was joined recently (05/2004) in the “lost” column by another local icon, the Java Lanes bowling alley, with it’s huge Polynesian “A”-frame roof. The Circle Drive-In was named for the (in)famous Alamitos traffic circle roundabout, down the street.
