This 12/04 LA Times story mentions the Avalon. I thought it was funny that the reporter used CT to look up the theaters instead of doing the research on his own.

I almost added the Empress as a new theater, as it was listed in the 1925 LA city directory. However, the address in 1925 was 722 Canal Avenue. I’ll bet that was a precursor to Avalon Boulevard, so Empress should be an aka as opposed to a new theater.

Thanks. I had the location confused.

The Cherry Pass Drive-In was in the city of Beaumont, Ca., it had a carcapacity of 500 cars and was operated by Sero Amusement Company.

722 Avalon is just a parking lot.

Never mind. Another ad says Highway 99, so they were talking about the city of Beaumont on the way to Palm Springs.

On 8/17/55, LA Times advertised the Cherry Pass Drive-In, between Beaumont and Banning. That sounds like Wilmington to me. Anyone ever heard of this drive-in?

From the LA Library. The theater is at the far end of the street:
