Added three aerials from over the years(1954,1972,1994)showing how much it changed.

Now a huge housing development with streets named after universities.

I meant to list 4/70 as the newspaper date.

Per a 4/74 Los Angeles Times listing, the Buena Park Drive-In opened with “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Ride The High Wind”. The ad also stated that the “colorful all-new drive-in theatre” featured a “super screen” and “super sound”.

The zip code is 90620. Chain and seat count should be changed to unknown.

This is a 1972 aerial photo. In the 1950s views, you can see the single screen, surrounded by farmland.

This now-forgotten film played briefly at the drive-in back in March 1972:

Obviously, it was split up after my last visit. My bad.

This single screen drive-in sat back to back with another single screen ozoner named the Lincoln.
