A photo on the back of No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom album has a good picture of the band standing in front of one of the screens at the Orange Drive-In.

Was mentioned in the documentary “Drive-In Movie Memories” in 2001.

In 1960, the drive-in also hosted church services:

Dr. FRANK LAUBACH, famed international Christian missionary, will be speaking in person in Southern California this Sunday morning at 11 a.m. in the Orange Church on the Santa Ana Freeway, 2 miles below Disneyland. Norman Vincent Peale has described Dr. Laubach as “one of the 10 greatest persons alive in the world today.” The Orange Church meets in the Orange Drive-In Theater where even the handicapped, hard of hearing, aged and infirm can see and hear the entire service without leaving their family car.

As you can see above, this was the first DI in Orange County and was operated by Pacific Theaters. It’s capacity was 798 cars.

Love the Orange Drive-in. Its screen boasted the biggest orange in Orange County! Now pretty much all of the oranges in OC are gone, including the Big O. Too bad.

I would pass by this drive-in on the way to the formal Anaheim Stadium.

When Pacific ran this Drive-In in 1969, the car capacity listing was 798.
