Mission Tiki Drive-In

Owned by De Anza Drive-Ins, this year-round drive-in has room for 1,400 cars. It opened on May 28, 1956 with William Holden in “Picnic” & John Agar in “Star in the Dust”.

In 1975, four new screens replaced the original screen, which was demolished - apparently, the original screen was demolished and its surface used for fencing along the northern perimeter of the theatre.

The theatre was later renamed the Mission Tiki Drive-In and is once again a premiere local attraction. The Mission Tiki Drive-In houses a swap meet on Wednesday and Friday through Sunday, and shows first-run movies seven days a week.

The Mission Tiki Drive-In is set to closed at the end of December 2019. The site will be redeveloped as a technology park. In November 2019 it was announced the drive-in & swap meet will stay open into 2020. It was closed in January 222, 2023 with Tom Hanks in “A Man Named Otto” & Alison Williams in “M3GAN”. The Swap Meet closed on January 30, 2023.

I took the wife to see Croods on Valentines Day. Really enjoyed the drive in and pizza.

Saw Jungle Cruise last night, perfect weather for a drive in movie.

Thanks for the note, CTCrouch. You can read Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen’s affectionate look back at the Mission Tiki’s final days here.

67 years has to be an L.A. area record. The Orange Drive-In closed in 1994 after 53 years and Hi-Way 39 was the last Orange County drive-in to close in 1997 after 42 years Sorry to see you go Mission Tiki
