The Bay Drive-In opened on Friday, July 17, 1953, according to a note a week later in Boxoffice. The opening program was Esther Williams in “Duchess of Idaho” & Dean Stockwell in “The Happy Years”.
The 1955-56 Theatre Catalog listed the Bay Drive-In with a capacity of 635 cars, owner Western Amusement.
A commenter on Geocaching.com wrote, “The theater was closed after a storm toppled the screen. I believe it was the infamous Columbus Day storm in 1962”.
The drive-in appeared to be intact, except perhaps for the screen, in 1969-70 aerial photos. By 1982 its structures were completely gone, though even today it’s still possible to see faint ramp arcs at the site.
