In the City of Industry, found in the county of Los Angeles, California, only one drive in theater still stands.
The Vineland Drive In and Swap Meet opened on April 15, 1955. Originally, the theater only had one screen and, of course, did not have a swap meet on the grounds.
During the 1980s when most drive in theaters were sadly closing down, the Vineland expanded to four screens, one at each corner of the lot. The theater holds a capacity of up to 1500 cars and is owned by Pacific Theaters. Both the theater and the swap meet, which first began in 1984, are open daily, year round. Movie admission price is only $8 (kids aged 11 and under are free)!
All four screens at the Vineland Drive In were recently upgraded to permit the use of Technalight technology. The Vineland is still seeing a lot of business today, especially on the weekends. The entrance line starts forming at around 6:45pm but the box office generally opens around 8pm. Grab some snacks at the concession stand or bring your own and enjoy your double feature under the stars!
