I had my fondest memory of the cinema at this drive-in. This was the entertainment in Avondale up until it closed in 1981. I remember as a child in the 70’s going to the drive-in to watch all of the Disney shows (herbie the Love bug, Mary Poppins, The Apple Dumpling Gang,..) as wall as Star Wars, and Jaws. The last movie we saw at the oasis was Godzilla vs. Megalon in 1981 before they shut it down.
It was torn down and today a apartment complex is on the site. My dad didn’t go to the movies for years after they tore down the Oasis.A lot of good memories there.

Yes it is located on N. Eight St. Now that street is called Dysart Rd. It was only called Eight St. in Avondale. Man, I haven’t heard it called that in years. I can get an exact address when I go down there this weekend for you.

back in my high school daze at Dysart, we used to go by the carload to the Oasis. Of course that meant stopping and putting people in the trunk to sneak them in…. lol man we had good times :)
