Long Description:
Located in Porterville, CA was built in 1950 a second screen added in 1990 (sounds kinda late) closed in 2004 and now for sale. This place has been cleaned up quite a lot since the last time we visited. Most the major features are still somewhat intact but the most important feature, the auto speakers, are gone. Located amongst a residential area, it might not last for long if the real estate market picks up again.

A newspaper article regarding a fire at the site in 2009 is located here http://www.recorderonline.com/news/fire-41409-drive-theater.html.

Current condition: Very little remains (signs, speaker posts, car ramps, screen structure, etc.)
