Final night of operation was September 5, 1988 with “Coming To America” and “Hot To Trot”.

My mother worked here in 1965 thru 1968. I remember the lobby was filled with the animals MR. Tharp shot with his bow. My mother loved working with the Mrs. Tharp. The Tharp’s daughter, Twyla became famous but I don’t know what happened to her twin brothers.

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.

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.

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.
