I saw Halloween there in 1978-79. Sometime after it closed, but while it stood, the snack bar was being used as a Flea Market. The 1983-1984 time frame sounds right.

The last ad that I found was dated Aug 30, 1983.

Feb. 18, 1984 Notice that property was sold to satisfy a $330,000 lien against Drive In by American International Pictures vs. Price Enterprises, Inc.

This opened on May 8th, 1970 and the 2nd screen a week later. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

I worked there in 1972-73 and both screens were there then, I worked in the snack bar.

Closed ~1982? Can anyone verify the exact date?

After it closed the Snack Bar Building was used as an indoor firing range.

More info and photos are always welcome.
