The actual address of this Drive-In was 1501 East 6th Street. From a map quest image … What appears to be the Snack Bar and Projection Booth are still there.

The October 21, 1950, issue of Boxoffice Magazine carried an item saying that the Cherry Pass Drive-In had begun operation. It was being managed by Sol Levin for the owners, Beau-Ban Enterprises. The theater featured a double box office pavilion, children’s playground, dance floor, and a 60 foot screen. It was one of many drive-ins designed during the era by Los Angeles architect J. Arthur Drielsma.
