Indio Twin Drive-In

The Coachello Valley Drive-In was opened prior to 1955 when it was operated by F and E Theatre Co. and Affiliated Theatres. By 1957 it had been renamed Indio Drive-In and was one of many theaters owned by Robert L. Lippert Theatres Inc. It had a capacity for around 600 cars. It was later twinned. The address above is the “modern” location where this drive-in was located. I couldn’t find much information on it, so I hope that other members here can help to fill in the blanks.

Is this the same Robert L. Lippert, film producer/distributor of many noted B-productions?

There was also a drive-in in the Palm Springs area, which is now gone. The pictures are from the same website:

Living in Indio in the 70s, we spent many nights at the Drive-In. During warm weather, sitting in Lawn Chairs and Drinking Beer there and at the one in Palm Springs.

What was the name of the Drive-In Theater in Cathedral City on Hwy 111 which was the best in the area during the 70s ?

Answering my own question, it was the Sun-Aire.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 83-791 Date Avenue.

Now Martha’s Kitchen and Village. This property was put to good use after the drive-in closed.
