The San Val Drive-In was the second drive-in theater to open in California, after the Drive-In Theatre on Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles. It opened on June 19, 1938 and was operated by Seth D. Perkins. It originally had a capacity for 590 cars. The San Val Drive-In was forever immortalized in the James Cagney classic “White Heat”.
Operated by the Pacific Theatres chain, the San Val Drive-In closed in the mid-1970’s and the site is now the home of several production and effect houses.
