Saw many movies there from childhood into adulthood. My brother had to go get our parents at 2:00 AM because they fell asleep with a light on in the camper and drained the battery. When they woke up the place was empty. Great swap meets with wonderful stuff from peoples garages. Bought my first skateboard (used with clay wheels) and some records that I still have. Does anyone who went there remember Ed the welder?

I used the be the projectionist at the drive-in until it was closed. Larry Jacobs was the owner and gave me my first chance at a job there. Back then it was managed by Jim Vanderhoff and I had the privilege of seeing many, of what would become, classic movies. I also had a chance at manning the snack bar for the swap meets on the weekends. Does anyone remember Lisa B., Jeff A., Paul S., Mr. Poulos or Rick B.? (Rick B.’s father owned a textile mill and was pretty well off.)

I lived near the Drive in for many years. I saw Pink Floyd the Wall, The Warriors, Boys in Company C… R Lee Ermy later to be GREAT in Full Metal Jacket……… My friends and I would open the corrugated roofing type barriers under the Screen in the middle of the day when no one was around turn up all the speakers that were close so we could hear the dialoge while sitting in the park that was located directly 60 feet just under the GIGANTIC SCREEN! I loved Mnt Baldy Drive in . I would love to see the sign in living color. Wow it was cool with the skier and the neon skis moving under him.
