Mann Theatres ran this drive-in in the ‘70s & early '80s. Saw the 1979 rerelease of “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” here with “Hot Lead & Cold Feet” here.

The new first run drive-in was started a year ago by Bernie Leavitt, California theatre owner; Sam Decker, theatre owner and picture producer; and Woody Wickersham, theatre owner and drive-in builder.”
