This drive-in was located on top of a hill near Hickey Boulevard in South San Francisco district of Colma, to the south of Daly City. What was pretty cool was this was one of the first drive-ins that had FM sound transmission. I had friends who lived up the hill, they could see the movies from their windows and listen to the sound on their radios.
Originally a single screen, operating by 1948 by Redwood-Lippert Theatres, it was later twinned. Closed in the early-1980’s and replaced by a condo-complex.
