Had my first date with my wife here in summer of 1991. We saw “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves”. Shame that no one has been able to find a photo of this theater.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 3800 Hope Street. When this was open, Winter Ave. ended just west of the drive-in.

I had the good fortune to be one of the projectionists at the Shasta Drive-In while I was stationed at Kingsley Field from 1976 to 1980. When I started in 1976, the Shasta was a single screen drive-in. I don’t remember what year it became a Triplex (maybe 77 or 78). The Shasta Drive-In was part of Redwood Theatres out of San Francisco along with the Esquire Walk-In and the Tower Twin Walk-In, all in Klamath Falls. The projectionist job in all three theatres was Union, so I got to work at all three. The projectionists were part of IATSE & MPMO Local 672 Medford/Klamath Falls. While I was there, the Klamath Falls steward was Homer Merritt and then Robert (Bob) Larrimer. I met and worked with some great people like Brent Budden, Dee Allen, Alvie, Leona Rowe and many many more. Would really like to hear from some of you.
