Opened on July 11, 1960 with Yul Brynner in “Once More with Feeling”. The South Bay Drive-In is San Diego’s last remaining drive-in. Its three screens feature current double bills from all the studios. Recently, projection was upgraded using the Technalight lamp technology, producing the brightest and sharpest images possible in a drive-in theatre. Audio is delivered by broadcast FM.
The theatre is open all year, seven days a week. Admission in 2010 is $7 for adults. Kids, under 12, are admitted for $1. The popular swap meet operates all year on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
