Drive-in theater closer to Hollywood than Vineland?

Is there an operational drive-in movie theater closer to Hollywood than the Vineland Drive-In in City of Industry?

Thank you.

While it's not exactly your traditional drive in, there is an organization that puts on drive-in movies in downtown Los Angeles. www.devilsnight.com

Never been there myself, but ere's a link to their Yelp reviews. yelp.com/biz/…

Thank you, Vixen, but I've seen this and ruled it out as not being a traditional drive-in, which is the experience we're looking for. Sorry, I should have been clearer.

I'm pretty sure that the answer to this is, sadly, no. A couple of years ago someone asked in this forum about drive in theaters in LA and the one in City Of Industry was the only one anyone could find. There used to be many in the more central parts of LA, but drive-ins are part of a bygone era now.

The Vineland Drive-In looks fabulous and exactly what we are looking for not only because it's a traditional drive-in but also because it shows current films. It's just a long way from where we're based. But we will probably make the effort because I'm sure it'll be a fantastic experience for us.

Drive-in movies have been steadily closing down, in LA and elsewhere. They're not all that profitable while they take up a lot of land that can be used for other things. See them while you can.

Thank you, wanderer. As you didn't suggest a closer alternative should I assume you don't think there is one?

I don't think there is a closer one, no.

I thought you may enjoy this web link which shows many of the Drive-ins which I visited growing up in the area.

Oh yes, thank you, drill. What I wouldn't give to jump in a time machine and go back to 1950s America.
