A drive-in that's on the "sunnyside" literally (at least when taking photos) is the Sunnyside Drive-in of Fresno. Another of Fresno's fun and games sites, the Sunnyside's main screen was once the "world's largest" screen tower. Many thanks to Andy Callahan for the above info.

The Valley Drive-in Theatre of Lompoc is no longer open. Located next to a new recycling center, are the Valley's days numbered? Only time will tell.

Near the recycling center in back of the drive-in is one of the dustiest areas around.

Here are photos of the undeveloped land at the former Sky View Drive-in Theatre located in Oxnard, CA. The Skyview is the last of five in Ventura County. This site had once been proposed for a major league baseball stadium complex and may now be developed for low income housing. Many thanks to Larry Gomez for photos and info. 03-08

According to the February 17, 2008 edition of the Ventura County Star, the Skyview Drive-in lot may also become a possibility for a big box retail store.
