The Gilmore Drive-In was located near the Farmers Market in the Fairfax area in Los Angeles. It had its entrance on W. 3rd Street at S. Fairfax Avenue. The Gilmore Drive-In opened in 1948 with a capacity for 650 cars. It lasted until the mid-1970’s. It sat for the next 5 years, before being razed.
Near the Gilmore Drive-In was a few other walk-in theatres. The Fairfax Theatre at S. Fairfax Avenue and Beverly Boulevard, the Pan Pacific Theatre on Beverly Boulevard, the Esquire Theatre on S. Fairfax Avenue (now Canters Deli), and the Silent Movie 3 blocks up S. Fairfax Avenue near Melrose Avenue. Also in the area was the Pan Pacific Auditorium and one of Los Angeles early sports areas called Gilmore Field.
As the sun sets on the former Gilmore Drive-In, the people in the Park La Brea area are now treated with a brand new Pacific multi-plex called the Grove.
