The Starlite Drive-In was opened on June 8, 1949. It was operated by Robert Lippert Theatres and had a capacity for 643 cars. The reinforced concrete screen tower was in a modern design, and there was a childrens play area and bench seating for walk-in patrons beneath it.

Set map link to 2757 S. Highway 99, Medford, OR 97501 United States and it’ll take you right to the entrance of an old drive-in. Shows up great in older GE imagery. Matt Loop goes right up the center of the old lot.

My first visit to the Starlite was in ‘65 on a double-date……..can’t remember the movie, but a lot of action in the vehicle…….my date tipped an entire pizza upside down, followed by spilling a large coke in my lap. My last visit was in the late 70’s/early 80’s, when they had modified it to a dual-screen theater.
