The entrance for this one was on E Kelly across from the high school. The trees that bordered the back of the drive-in are still there behind Kohl’s.

Yes, it closed in 1983. Last film it showed was a a re-release of the original “Jaws.”
I saw many movies there as a kid, and have been looking for photographs of that great old place for years.

The drive-in closed in 1983! Pacific was to build a 8 screen movie theatre complex however the city had lots of restrictions! Pacific still owns the land and buildings. They are making a fortune without showing a movie! They did the same thing with the VEntura 101 Drive-In
