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.

It looks like it closed in 1987.

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.
