UA Crescent Drive-In

The Crescent Drive-In was formerly located on Flosden Road near American Canyon Road in Vallejo. Opened in 1948 by a private owner, the Crescent Drive-In was eventually purchased and operated under the United Artists banner.

The UA Crescent Drive-In was demolished and sat vacant for several years, and is now part of a housing subdivision in the newly incorporated American Canyon area.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 2541 Flosden Road, now American Canyon, CA 94503. Now housing.

Bethany Dr. next to this address was where the screen stood. Crescent Dr. was the back of the drive-in.

Went to UA Drive in theatre in the early 70s and watched the film ‘Paint your Wagon’. They also played cartoons like ‘Felx the Cat’ and ‘Fritz the Cat’ movies that were made in the 60s and considered X-rated by that era standards. I remember it was sometimes annoying trying to watch movies there because of the old Vallejo Speedway going on in the background, a lot of loud engine noise going on back then. The drive in was located on Flosden Road but later named Fairgrounds Dr., considered the City of American Canyon. There are now track houses and trailer parks in that location today.
