“The Van Nuys Drive-in, was actually located slightly outside of the city of Van Nuys, in Southern California, but perhaps not when it was first constructed as many cities have redrawn their boarders over the years.
In their day, these well lit drive-ins stood out in the darkness of night like beacons to draw attention in the rural night sky. Many featured enormous beautifully painted murals such as both the Van Nuys, and the El Monte in this collection. A number of San Fernando Valley Drive-ins including the Van Nuys, helped feed the growing amount of young people Cruising Van Nuys Boulevard. Sadly these historic monuments from yesterday have all been torn down, and replaced by such interesting things such as strip malls, and parking lots.
