Opened in 1964, the Moffett Drive-In was located nearly adjacent to Moffett Field Naval Airbase. The back side of the screen provided an impressive neon display outlining “Moffett” in huge stylized lettering, along with large golden yellow neon-outlined star shapes that dotted the space surrounding the lettering. This was all easily seen from the Bayshore Freeway.
The same design existed on the back sides of the screens for the Redwood Drive-In in Redwood City (demolished) and the Union City Drive-In in Union City. The Union City evolved into a multi-screen venue but and the original screen may still be there. Both the Union City and Redwood were also easily seen from the Nimitz and Bayshore Freeways, respectively.
The Moffett Drive-In was closed in 1985 and was demolished to build the Century Cinema 16.
