“I lived near this drive in and as a youngster got to see a lot movies there with my parents. The Sunset was huge, had the familiar playground under the screen and the snack bar had good food. I saw my first 3-D movie here which was "Arena”, about a rodeo rider. As a teenager sneaking friends into the theater in the trunk was done a time or two"….Billy Smith
