Sunset Drive-In

Rich in history dating back to its opening on August 31 1950 with William Holden in “Dear Wife”. The Sunset Drive-In was named for the beautiful sunset that was taking place during the building of our marquee. Since that time the drive-in has gone through many changes, from a one screen 300 car capacity outdoor theatre and small coffee shop to in 1995, a three screen theatre with a full service family restaurant.

On the map link above, just scroll to the left a little… Address is off a tad. If you type in 9474 Telegraph Rd it takes you right to it.
