The Victorville Daily Press says that Jack Baldock, who at one time or another operated five of the theatres in Victorville, built this two-screen ozoner in 1981. Baldock’s company, Western Amusements, also operated other theaters in the West.
Baldock, a prominent local businessman, who passed away in 2002 at the age of 88, was a theatre veteran, having worked in eight different theatres by the age of 16.
The exact closing date hasn’t been determined but for the curious, the drive-in was located in an area behind where Wal-Mart is located today. An outline of the theatre is still visible on Microsoft maps aerial views.
Memorabilia of some of the theatres in Victorville can be seen at the Victorville Route 66 museum.
