Grand opening was on November 21, 1956 with Elvis' debut film “Love Me Tender”, plus “The Desperados Are In Town” starring Robert Arthur and Kathy Nolan. Final night of operation was September 14, 1989 with “Uncle Buck” and “K-9”.

Here is a 1959 aerial photo. At that time Fontana was more agricultural than commercial, judging by the adjacent properties:

This was a fun place. It was out in the middle of nowhere. Because of the TV show, Airwolf, I started college at San Bernardino Valley College with a major in Aeronautics. Later, I went to the big Pacific drive-in, the Baseline. A lot of good times running that projection room.
