Possibly opened around 1954, the Sunset Drive-In is listed as open in 1955 with a capacity for 400 cars. It closed in 2000.

The screen, concessions stand, & ticket booth are all still standing. It is fenced off, with ‘NO Trespassing’ signs aligned the area!

It parked between 250 and 500 cars and was owned in 1956 by Martin Butler.

DIT2001…I just thinking that. I have no information on it. I have seen where the owners have shut a DI down and put it hibernation/fenced for security for a few years to reopen it later on.
