El Rey Drive-In

The 84 Drive-In was opened in 1953. It was operated by Lloyd Hutchins and later by E.T. Borum. It showed both English & Spanish language movies.

In its last years of operated it was taken over by E.F. Rey and was renamed El Rey Drive-In, screening Spanish language movies. It was closed in the early-1980’s and the screen and other buildings were torn down around 1987.

It is now a salvage yard.
