El Rancho 4 Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The El Rancho opened in 1950 as a single-screen drive-in. Over the years, it has grown to four screens. There is parking for over 560 cars and FM sound. The drive-in was operated by the Century Theatres chain. The El Rancho also hosts a swap meet.

It is now operated by the West Winds Drive-Ins chain.

After all these years, this is still a fun place to visit! I worried during the mid 80’s the place would close. Still a fun destination on hot summer nights.
The best “Drive-In fare” would play here in the ‘60’s and '70’s. Everything from the “Planet of the Apes” films, horror films, “Swinging Cheerleaders”-type T&A films to the latest blockbusters would play here side by side.
The first film I ever saw, “Jaws”, I saw here in 1975. I visit every summer when I’m in town.
Great place and the projection is good. Nothing but great memories of the El Rancho!
