The map location is wrong. It’s houses there since 1955. The drive ins were on Lincoln & Holder.

Like many California Drive-ins, this theatre shared the lot with another Drive-in, the Buena Park, before merging operations as the Buena Park Lincoln. Demolished in 1996, the land was redeveloped for residential use.

A further comment – as noted elsewhere, this drive-in originally was back-to-back with the Buena Park Drive-In, which was actually a better theater, but unfortunately fell victim to the economic woes which led to this theater charging a buck and a half a carload in the mid-1960s just to stay in business.
