The Crest opened too late to be included in the 1963 motion picture almanac, which astute readers will surmise that I have just purchased ($5 used). Bakersfield drive-ins in the 1963 edition were the 99, So. Chester, Edison and Terrace.

The CREST was such a part of my youth that I cannot think about those years without recalling all the great movies at the drive-in. RIP, old friend.

Does anyone know the day and the month the Crest drive in closed and what was the last movie shown there?
