The April 7, 1958 issue of Boxoffice said that the Tu-Vu Drive-In was designed by San Diego architect Stanley Burne.

Aerial photos suggest that the Tu-Vu scaled back to keep only its west screen active by the late 1960s. Irregularities (weeds?) were starting to grow on the east ramps in 1966, and had taken over wide sections in 1972. Also, the 1970 topo map for the area outlined only the west field as “Drive-In Theater”.

Saw “Mysterious Island”, “The Birds”, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” there. 2 screens, even though the second one wasn’t used.
