Help Bring Back the Drive-In!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 12, 2011 at 10:40 AM

If the demise of the DeAnza drive-in theater two years ago left you reeling, now's your chance to revive it. "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs," the last movie the theater showed before shutting down, will play Saturday as part of a fundraiser to bring the drive-in back.

The Cactus Drive-In Theater Foundation, taking the name DeAnza used in its first three decades of operation, recovered the theater's cinemascope screen and will use it for the event.

Per a press release:

This exciting fundraising event for the Cactus Drive-in will be held on their temporary location on the Avenida Del Convento just south of the Mercado San Augustin building. (http://mercadosanagustin.com/) It is located just west of I-10 on Congress and then south on Avenida Del Covento. The suggested donations will be $10 per car or $4 per individual to help support their project. Some seating will be available for bike-ins and walk-ins but limited. Gates open at 6:30 PM and Cartoon etc.seen at 7:30 and feature at 8 PM.

Along with the feature, a historical cartoon and an intermission presentation from the past will be shown before the feature. A short video highlighting the amazing efforts volunteers have contributed to this project will also be seen. The foundation has TWO professional projectors and TWO complete sound systems donated to their project. One of these FM sound transmitters will be used at the event and broadcasted to the attendees’ radio.
