One of the last of the Route 66 drive-ins, the Foothill Azusa in the friendly city of Azusa is a single-screener to boot! The nearby Azusa Pacific University has taken over ownership of this site with the interest of extending its campus/parking. Yep, they're about to pave paradise and put up a parking lot.

For more information, see Roadside Peek's Lost Treasures tribute to the Azusa Pacific Drive-in Theatre.

Off the10 freeway in Rosemead, CA is the magnificent marquee and remains of the old Starlite Drive-in Theatre, with star still intact. The screen was removed long ago. This is another one of the drive-in come swap-meet sites.

Off the Interstate 5 in (yes) Santa Fe Springs is the remnants of the Santa Fe Springs Drive-in Theatre. This old classic is a permanent swap-meet with permanent sheds.

The Studio Drive-in was a roadside eye-catcher for generations. Located off Sepulveda Blvd. in Culver City, the Studio's immense screen with its plain, yet appealing block lettering drew in motorists from afar. Alas, the Studio met it's demise at the end of 1998.



Norwalk Drive-in Theatre (Demolished)
Norwalk, CA

A great roadside marquee was the Norwalk Drive-in Theatre. Drivers passing through couldn't miss the massive marquee, beckoning one and all to see a drive-in movie. But alas, this drive-in was roto-tilled in mid-1998.
