First time visit was last night (where I was welcomed with a TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR in the middle of the flick!). Considerably smaller than the other 4 LA area accessible D/I’s, but clean, well staffed and yummy popcorn. Digital projection is nice and bright and no static interference from the FM radio sound.

Once more folks realize that this spot has reopened, it’s going to be a MONSTER! Heck, with a little reconstruction of their surrounding perimeter walls, they can fit another screen! Maybe 2 more!

Are they open 7 days a week or just Fri-Sat-Sun right now?

This could be the drive-in seen at begining of “Mission Impossible”(season 1, episode 28 – The Psychic), where Dan Briggs(Steven Hill) driving into the drive-in to get audio message from the drive-in speaker and photos and instructions waiting for him behind the drive-in speaker on the post. There was no sign to show the name of the drive-in theatre, but it’s the nearest drive-in to the old Desilu Studios(taken over by Paramount Studios in 1967, the same year as the episode). There was one(or maybe films seen on the(marquee?) on top of the ticket booths as Dan Briggs drove in the drive-in theatre.

DavidZ, thanks for the article link. It says the place opened as the Paramount, but don’t be fooled. Every contemporary reference I’ve seen calls it the Roadium. The article mentions that “it shut down in 1992,” so that might be a good closing date.
