The Warner Drive-In, Orange County’s seventh drive-in built since 1941, opened quietly on June 29, 1961 with just a small ad announcing its attractions, “The Wackiest Ship in the Army” and “They Came to Cordova”. In later listings it shared billing under the Family Drive-In Theatre with the Lincoln Drive-In, formerly the Cina-Car (375 cars), which opened in the late-1940’s as the county’s second-built drive-in.
Both theaters charged $1.50 a carload for second-run movies but their fare improved after they became Pacific drive-ins on February 14, 1962. In fact, every county drive-in that started as an independent eventually was under the Pacific Theatre banner. The 600-car Warner’s last day of operation was in October of 1984, and, as usual, retail stores were later built on the site.
