Visited The Valley on 04/10/09. The Double Feature was “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” followed by “Pink Panther 2”. Admission was $5.00 per person. Everything on the drive in property was very clean and in good repair. The staff was very friendly and nice to deal with. Concession stand was clean, reasonably priced and decorated in a 1950’s theme. Projection was from a platter system and the front 2 rows still have car speakers….otherwise, you got the sound from your AM radio. Sadly, there were none of the classic intermission trailers in between feature. Intermission lasted perhaps 5 minutes. The screen is fairly new as the old one blew over sometime within the past 8 years. The marquee appears to be original. The owners also own the Cover 4 downtown.

Like a said above, this theater is a single screen. Fun drive in to visit!

News Article from May 2011 on closing of drive-in. Final season appears to have been in 2010.

September 2015 Google Street View shows nothing had been done to the property since it closed, but the “For Lease” sign on the marquee was not there anymore.
