Pacific Theatres ran this drive-in until its closure in 1989. All the Pacific drive-ins in the San Bernardino County closed at,roughly,the same time.

Here is an update on the FOOTHILL DRIVE IN. It parked in 1956 700 cars, so it must have lost some spots. It was owned by Lesile C. Tharp. by Co-op Theatres Inc.

When I used to go to the Foothill Drive In I was waited on by Twyla Tharp. Twyla was the daughter of the owner. She became quite a famous choreographer.
