Paramount Drive-In Theatres

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened as the Roadium Drive-In in 1947 when the area was known as Clearwater. This drive-in seems to have made it to at least the early-1980’s. It was used as a swap-meet for many years.

The Paramount Twin Drive-In was renovated and reopened April 18, 2014.

BREAKING NEWS: The drive-in is RETURNING to this swap meet! The news reports says it’s gonna be a 2 screener (like it was originally) equipped with digital projection and all the trimmings. It’s slated to open in Spring 2014!

Screens are up! Facebook page is up! Website is up! Looks like they’re going with the name Paramount Drive-In Theatres. Still no official opening date, but their Facebook page indicates that they will announce that in a week or so.

Their FB page has pictures of the screens and a local news report showing the screens being mounted on the site. Pretty spiffy!

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?
