OCRon..so the correct address is 3714 Cerrillos Road Santa Fe, NM 87507 for the Yucca.

The Pueblo Drive-In was at 3251 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe, NM 87507 ?

In looking at topo maps of the area there was two drive-ins pretty close to each other.

You could add the Pueblo Drive-In to CT, OCRon…

I used to be the snack bar cook for the Yucca and worked there it’s last two seasons. It was only opened during the summer months due to the fact winters here were to cold. Now a hotel takes up the space.

My fondest memory is when the Yucca was showing Sam Raimi’s The Quick and the Dead and Gene Hackman showed up in a silver Rolls Royce to watch the movie. We (the theater crew) were pretty excited.

My other duty there other then snack bar cook was to walk around and tell folks not to drink beer,which happened a lot.

Also I found out the last season there ,that the drive in was throwing away the preview loops so I started taking them home. I have a shoe box worth of them packed away.
