Located on Newport Boulevard and Paularino Road, between Costa Mesa and Santa Ana, CA. After four months of construction and a cost of $300,000, the Paulo Drive-In, Orange County’s third ozoner opened on July 8, 1949 with William Holden in “Streets of Larado” & Stephen McNally in “City Across the River”.
Built by Ward Theatres, it was advertised as having a 40x60 foot mammoth screen. It was briefly listed as a Cabart Theatre in the early-1950’s until September of 1952 when it became part of Pacific Theatres, California’s largest drive-in chain.
It’s last double bill was on February 2, 1976 with “Flesh Gordon” and “The Cheerleaders.” Later, it was demolished and apartments were built on the site.
