News About This Theater
Burbank’s Pickwick Drive-In opened May 12, 1949 with Arthur Franz in “Red Stallion in the Rockies” & Dorothy Lamour in “The Lucky Stiff”. It had space for 781 cars and the screen was 50ft wide. It was first operated by Cal-Pac theatres.
Operated by Pacific Theatres, the theater is perhaps best known as the site of the World Premiere of Mel Brooks’s "Blazing Saddles". Warner Brothers held the premiere at this drive-in and the guests were led in on horses.
The Pickwick Drive-In was closed September 10, 1989 with Tom Hanks in “Turner & Hooch” and Harrison Ford in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. It was torn down in October 1989.
