Re: Old pics of the area

Anyone remember the Orange Drive-in? This was taken in 1946. It opened in 1941.

When this pic was taken, it was located on Placentia Ave (now State College Blvd) near U.S. Hwy 101 (now the Santa Ana Freeway). Ceased operation in the early 90s, screens torn down in '97. I went to a few swap meets there back in the day, but never a movie. That's because San Juan had its own drive-in alongside the freeway, now long gone of course.
