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.

Nope Tlingit. Still got my eye out for that 6 foot monster garter I've had for a few years. Last year I shared photos of that juvenile rattlesnake I caught and set free.

Finally, 1st snake siting. lil 2 1/2' garter/garden/racer thing, I forgot, mostly dark with two lengthwise light stripes. Spread the word to them: if ur ass half is sticking out, you may get stepped on. Nearly twisted an ankle dodging. 🐍

If, going forward, we can channel our justifiable anger into peaceful, sustained, and effective action, then this moment can be a real turning point in our nation’s long journey to live up to our highest ideals.

Let’s get to work.

My mom worked for LAPD during the LA riots, and has since retired. Now my dad in his 24th yr with LAPD, is dealing with it. My heart breaks for the shop owners, they didn't deserve this crap. I hope they can recover somehow.
