Bridgehead 1-2-3 Drive-in

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Bridgehead 1-2-3 (Named for its close proximity to the Antioch Bridge) was located off of Hwy 4 in Antioch, and provided almost 50 years of entertainment in this rural and growing community.

Built in 1950 as a single-screen, the owners expanded to two and then three screens by the mid 1970’s.

Unfortunately, the land proved to be too valuable, and the Bridgehead closed in 1994. Shortly thereafter, the theater was demolished and the land regraded for commercial retail use. Today, the site is occupied by a K Mart, Burger King, gas station, and a self-storage facility.

The former entrance road was paved, and was given an appropriate name: Drive In Avenue.

Nothing remains of this much-loved theater.

Why do they always put in a Burger King when they build a K-Mart? Why not a nice French restaurant? It doesn’t reflect well on K-Mart’s target demographic.

For that matter why must they keep tearing down drive-ins?

There are some aerial views of the drive-in on this site, from the fifties and sixties. The 1949 view shows only farmland. Enter the address on the site to see the photos.

Uploaded some aerials. It is funny that they built on the drive-in theatre site. If you look around at the current aerial alot of open spaces yet.
