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.

Enjoying a gorgeous day out there today, temp bounced back nicely reaching the lower 50s. Expect fair and warmer weather through this week, temps could even hit 60 later in the week. Longer range models trending wetter for our storm early next week, lets hope they hold steady!

Just made UTH on the 38. (When I left at 4p, chain Control was just closing at Hatchery). On my return, CC was active at AO & Hatchery. Half inch of slush between Angeles Oaks and Onyx Summit, but lots of heavy fog. (I can deal with the slush, but the fog sucks!!). I only saw 1 plow running. I'm hoping CalTrans can get a good jump on clearing the roads in the morning (and maybe lift chain restrictions my lunch time -- I have a friend coming UTH)
