This was THE DRIVE-IN to see a movie at in San Bernardino County, West of Los Angeles County. Nessled at the base of the massive San Berdoo mountains, the view within this beautifully manicured drive-in was spectacular.

Around 1981, I was working out of 110 in Chicago. I got a call from Business Agent Orr in San Bernardino, CA. He said he had been trying to track me down. Actually, it was his son who had first made contact with me. I immediately jumped in the car and drove there.

Homer, the district manager, welcomed me back, and I was in paradise. Having scrubed, cleaned and painted the entire projection room, I settled in for an unforgetable experience. Finally, at dusk while the view of the mountains was still visible behind the screen, I would turn-over that screaming generator and fire-up the carbon arc. Then, it was time to kill the preshow music and announce on the microphone, IT WAS SHOWTIME!
