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 theater 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.

The Island Valley Daily Bulletin ran the story of the sale on Oct. 31, 2019. According to that article, William Oldknow and Jack Anderson opened the Mission Drive-In, which had a capacity of 1350, on May 28, 1956. As was common for large drive-ins of the period, it had a 122x50-foot curved screen designed for CinemaScope. On the first night, the Mission showed the double feature Picnic and Star in the Dust.

What are those doors under the screen for?

This drive-in should be heritage listed!!

Those doors look like storage containers. Maybe something to do with the flea market or a side business renting storage sheds.
