What do you remember about this popular spot in Delmar?

The Delmar Drive-In opened April 8, 1950 with Robert Young in “Relentless”. This single screen drive-in had a capacity for 750 cars. The Delmar Drive-In closed around 1985. (Cinema Treasures)

I remember drive down Old Bi-Sate Blvd seeing that in the woods, well the trees had taken over the place... The front part where you pay for the ticket and enter was still there and some of the framing for the screen... Now, I think it all fell down or was removed...

This was all part of the program. Sweet rides with glass packs and a couple bucks in your pocket that you worked hard for. This to take a gal there and buy a coke or popcorn to enjoy her company. Good time by all.

I remember watching the first Star Wars movie at the Delmar Drive-in.

A lot of people were conceived there.

11:15 AM - You beat me to it. It would be interesting to find out how many Baby Boomers were conceived in the back seat at the local drive-in. Somebody should write a book.

We used to beg our mom to take us there when they were showing monster or science fiction movies. Sometimes the all night shows. Loved that place. Great memories.
