Opened on July 27, 1962 with Elvis Presley in “Blue Hawaii” & Jerry Lewis in “Visit to a Small Planet”. This was a drive-in just north of San Rafael, California. It was a pretty big drive-in too, with a capacity for 1,000 cars. You could see the screen from the highway as you passed by. It was very popular with the high school kids.

Approx. address is 280 Smith Ranch Road where the Cinemark Regency 6 cinemas now stands. I used to pass by the drive-in all the time. I’ve been to the Regency a few times too.

Did it show 101 movies before it closed?

No. But it was right off Highway 101.
