My, oh, my. I dream that one day I will drive along Interstate 5 through Fife and see that giant screen resurrected and flickering again.
But, alas, no.
The Fife Drive-In was built in 1950 by Mike Barovic and W.R. Forman. It opened that summer, and movies flashed on the giant plywood screen until 1985 or 1986.
The site was razed in the early-1990’s to make way for apartments, of course. A few of the poplar trees that surrounded the site remain.
I remember vividly sitting in the backseat of my parents' car as we drove along I-5 at night and peering out the window for just a glimpse of what was playing at the drive-in.
