This Drive-in parked 1,500 cars and was owned by the Berman brothers.

Yes, I saw the Pictures and made a comment. Guess I pissed Robin off for missing that NATIONAL HILLS THEATRE REUNION PARTY. She hasn’t answered any of my posts on NATIONAL HILLS, COLUMBIA SQUARE,or the IMPERIAL.

The drive in theatre was seen in the television series Chips(Season 3,episode 11 – The return of the supercycle.),chased by baker(and Ponch?) in the drive in theatre(scene unknown). According to Chips wiki it may also have appeared before in the Chips television series(Season 1,episode 8-green thumb burglar),althrough the sign seen briefly before the police chase enters the drive in theatre lot,says Long Beach(drive in?)

For those with Netflix the Sepulveda is (quickly) visible during the introductory ‘bus ride’ in the newly-released Orson Welles film THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND. (A different portion of the film was reportedly photographed inside of the nearby Reseda Drive-In.)
