The Van Nuys Drive-In was one of many Pacific drive-ins that had murals on their screen towers. The Van Nuys Drive-In opened on July 30, 1948 with Joel McCrea in “Buffalo Bill” & Annabella in “Wings of the Morning”. It parked 891 cars. It lost its mural and original screen tower when it became a tri-plex drive-in.
During its last year, it was the last drive-In located in the valley area of Los Angeles. As Pacific Theatres closed the theater, its marquee said “closed for the season”. That next season never came.
The Van Nuys Drive-In sat empty for a few years and was being used to store cars from a nearby dealership. It was demolished in the late-1990’s.
As of October 2002, the Vineland Drive-In, Pacific’s last drive-in theater, is the closest ozoner to the valley and Los Angeles proper following the closures of the Azusa Drive-In and 101 Drive-In.
