The San Pedro Drive-In opened on June 6th, 1949 with John Payne in “El Paso” & Doris Day in “My Dream is Yours”. The San Pedro Drive-In had a distinctive trademark in a colorful mural emblazoned on the highway side of the steel and plaster screen tower building.
At the top of the graphic illustration of a caballero on horseback waving to approaching ships, the theatre name was blocked out in neon-lighted letters. The architect of the San Pedro Drive-In was William Glenn Balch & Louis L. Bryan. It had a car capacity for 900, and was operated by the Pacific Theatres chain. From June 11, 1972 it went over to screening Spanish language movies. The San Pedro Drive-In was closed November 22, 1982. The site was used for storage and it was demolished in 1987.
