Opened by 1968, it closed in 1982. Now a residential area. Dolphin Circle makes up most of where the drive in stood.

The drive-in was clearly visible in a 1968 aerial photo. I don’t see the screen in the 1981 aerial, but the ramps were still in good shape.

Although the aerial proves it opened earlier, the drive-in’s first appearance in the Motion Picture Alamanc was the 1970 edition, where the circuit list entry for United Artists Theatre Circuit listed the U.A. Marina Auto Movie under Monterey.

The 1972-76 MPA drive-in lists included “UAmarina” (capacity 620) under Marina CA. The rebooted 1977 MPA drive-in list had the Marina Auto Movie (capacity 754) under Monterey.

The Marina Auto Movie’s final appearance in the MPA drive-in list was 1982; the UA circuit’s holdings placed it in Marina that year. In the 1983 edition, the Marina Auto Movie was gone from all MPA lists.
