This drive in was located along the east bound lanes on the San Bernardino freeway (10) and from your car speeding along you could always tell from the marquee what was playing. I remember they charged $5 for admission by the carload. We used to go to the In and Out Burgers stand not far away and take burgers in with us.

With all that drama, Pacific probably couldn’t wait to tear this place down!

Somewhere between the year of 1981-1984 my family and I witnessed a UFO sighting at this drive-in location. It’s an experience the four of us will never forget. A strange, bright craft hovered near the upper right corner of the projector screen for almost 2 full minutes before disappearing at such a rapid rate that one would miss it’s departure at the blink of an eye. The drive-in was almost full and I remember folks panicing and fleeing the theatre. Anybody with any information please post any information that can help us get in contact with any of the other people who witness this amazing event.

I just found a payroll sheet that says I worked as a projectionist here Aug 16 & 17, 1985. The features were Secret Admirer, Just One Of The Boys & Fraternity Vacation.

Tequila Shot, I was there that night with the UFO. I remember it well. I remember like 70-80% of the cars headed like crazy out the exit, and the line and everyone freaking out. At first it seemed like a helicopter, but as close as it got to the screen, there was no way it was a helicopter, as it also didn’t make any helicopter noise.
