Can anyone tell me exactly where this drive in was vis-a-vis what's there now? I would really appreciate it! Does anyone have any photos? I don't seem to be able to locate anywhere. Thanks,

The drive-was located in what is now the east end of the airport. We lived on Sierra off Greenway in the 50's. The drive-in would let us kids haul over a sleeping bag and walk-in, and the first row or two of speaker kiosks were pretty much reserved for the small-fry walk-in crowd. I watched a few movies there as a kid.

This awful, fuzzy picture is alleged to have been taken in 1958. The view is looking south from, roughly, the corner of Greenway and Arbor. The Drive-in screen is right in the middle of the picture.

While it was in operation, the Drive-in was bounded on the north by Meadow Lane, the east by Greenway and the west by Sawmill (long gone -- sucked into the County Airport Black Hole). On the south was a little dirt road connecting Greeway with Sawmill. Further south was a drainage channel, then the Peter Pan swimming pool, Lodge and tennis courts. The drive-in is all gone now, paved over and turned into the taxiway and run-up area for runway 26.

In the early 60's I would grab a blanket and walk down the street with a couple of local residents and we would sneak through a hole in the west fence and watch the movies. One summer we were there so much we saw every weekly showing for about 6 or 7 weeks.

I was just curious. I didn't think it was anything I had to be overtly worried about.

juju--he's down the hill but comes up here often. I think he's avocado only, but I could be wrong. I'm just about to reorder.

This helicopter has been hovering around this area over the past 3 hours and I still don't know what is going on.

I’m not familiar with Tomas who does wood. Does anyone have his number? I assume he is up here?

Scrambled, I know Tomas has been busy, but I had my wood delivered by him last week, so did Lumber Jill and Cammy, I know he's around. Just keep calling him, he'll answer eventually!

Good morning all. I just heard and saw on the KTLA news that Tahoe and surrounding areas got their first snowfall yesterday. I hope Benny is gearing up for this year's SNOW POLL season! It could be epic! Perhaps a radio deal with KTOT could be reached....oh wait, never mind they sort of went out of business a few decades back. Have a great day!
