That is correct. It is in the original area where the gold rush started in California. This city was known by several different names, including Old Dry Diggings and Hangtown before officially becoming Placerville in 1854.

Is Placerville a gold mining area hence the El Dorado name?

The last time we were there was when we were in high school (Ponderosa High) in 1971 and saw “Diamond are Forever”. You could lay out under the stars in the back of a friends pickup on a mattress and enjoy the movie and the summer. Those were the good ole days.

The last movies I saw in this theater were License to Drive and Crocodile Dundee 2. Both were in 1988, just before the Drive-In closed.
