My mom thinks this place might have been on Holt, does anyone know exactly where? I went there as a kid, but can’t really remember it.
There is a pic of it here.

Here is a 1952 photo. I think the placard says Holt Boulevard and Central Avenue.

Wow, thanks! You’d never even know driving through there that there was ever a grand drive-in like this there…how sad.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 10477 Central Ave. While the entrance was the car dealership, most of the drive-in is now Saratoga Park behind this.
