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.

Yeah they've even put signs up along hwy 38, 5 or more cars to pull over. Haven't noticed them on 330, and it doesn't seem like they do any good anyway.

I’ve been driving UTH & DTH for 21 years. One of my pet peeve‘s is when people speed up at the passing lane… Dries me nuts! If you want to drive slow pull over! The main problem is the flatlanders they think they own the road and really they’re breaking the law, I’ve seen so many driving slow and refusingi to pull over . I believe if you have five cars behind you you were supposed to pull over but this is absolutely ignored all the time. Drives me nuts

I think there are lots of reasons people might drive a bit slow on the 330. Unfamiliarity, vacation mode, retiree mode and/or just enjoying the view. I think I drive on the slower side because I have a dog that gets car sick and I don't like to feel like I am working hard at driving (if that makes sense). I use the turnouts unless I'm in the middle of a pack and I'm keeping up with the guy in front of me. Even then, if somebody's on my bumper I'll use a turnout. I don't have to do the drive every day so maybe it's easier for me to be relaxed about it.

Quakes, we usually have 2-3 military helicopters fly through every day up over Big Bear, in addition to the weekly Osprey flyovers. Not to mention the daily tour chopper(s), Mercy Air(H285), etc. The military uses our area as training grounds, which is similar terrain to Afghanistan.

I drive slow partially because coming around a blind turn, you never know when there maybe a bolder in the road. isn't it easy just to slow down?

Quakes...there are usually 3 or 2 military helicopters about every 2-3 weeks....nothing to worry about...I am in your area so they are the norm.

Dream, you are one of the few that actually slow down when in the right passing lane. Usually most will speed up to prevent anyone from passing them, they seem to have a mentality of "I have to be in the lead". I have always thought that it should be: Lead, follow or get out of the way. Thanks for being courteous, wish more people were like that.

Driving slow and safe through the curves would be ok if they did not fly through the passing lanes. When towing our boat, I actually slow down when I get to the passing lanes so no one has to risk a speeding ticket to pass me.
Just comes down to being courteous.

At least on the 18 from Waterman there are 2 lanes and I can pass the vertically challenged. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't alone. I refuse to come up the 330 on Friday afternoons.

ALSO, BE ADVISED, THE BLACKHAWK HELICOPTER(S) ARE BUZZING AROUND MOONRIDGE. YOU WILL SEE AIRCRAFT IN THE AREA AND MAY HEAR QUITE A BIT OF (FAKE)GUNFIRE.

3 helicopters in a row just flew over my house. They appeared to be military helicopters.

Really, after 10 years up and down you have to question why DTH dad is driving like either great grandpa or mario andrette?? Wife yelling at him, kids throwing up, and looking at the cliff he is going to drive off in the next 30 seconds. that is why we call them FlatLanders........OOPS.....Vertica lly Challenged to be PC
