This classic film was playing at the 101 in September 1982, according to the LA Times:

The 101 Drive-In when it was a single screen drive-in had a car capacity of 800 cars. It was operated once by 101 Theatres Corp. and later by Pacific Theatres.

In the late 1970s I lived in Newbury Park in Ventura County. We lived across the street from the Thousand Oaks Drive-in. Most weekends my family would see a film at the Thousand Oaks Drive-in but when we wanted to see something that was not playing there we would drive up Highway 101 and see a film at the 101 Drive-in which had multiple screens.

Opened in 1956 as the One-O-One Drive-In Theatre, it operated under this name until 1967 or 1968, at which point it became the Pacific One-O-One Drive-In Theatre, from 1969 through its closing. A huge new clutch of shopping malls inhabits this space now.
