The Centinela Drive-In to the north of Inglewood was opened April 27, 1950, when it was operated by Aladdin Theatres and the Berman Brothers. On March 8, 1956 it was taken over by Pacific Theatres and renamed Pacific Drive-In. It later returned to its original name and was closed September 26, 1993. It was demolished in 1998. A condominium complex has been built on the site.
It had a functional steel-girder screen with lots of metal work done in the Art Moderne style. The Centinela Drive-In glowed in a vivid electric blue neon across the back of the theatre screen after dark. It was always an enjoyable experience going there.
