The Cactus Drive-In opened March 24, 1951 with Yvonne De Carlo in “The Gal Who Took the West” & Donald O'Connor in “Feudin', Fussin' and A-Fightin'”. It had a capacity for 600 cars. The single screen Cactus Drive-In closed October 27, 1976.
In 1977 the drive-in re-opened as the De Anza Drive-In with three screens. A year later a fourth screen was added. Car capacity is still listed as 600.
The De Anza Drive-In was closed on October 3, 2009, and was soon demolished.
