Lakewood Drive-In

The Lakewood Drive-In was opened on August 26, 1948. If I can remember correctly, this drive-in was located on Carson Street on the border of Lakewood and Long Beach. It had a sail boat painted on the screen. It was closed on September 3, 1990.

Above address will not map correctly. Use 2250 E. Carson Street. Ralph’s is where the drive-in stood.

The Lakewood Drive-in was located at Carson and Lakewood Blvd, across from Douglas Aircraft and just west from Cal-Bowl just beyond the railroad tracks, (tho I never in 35 years saw any train on the tracts). The Los Altos Drive-in was located on Bellflower Blvd where Worthington Ford now sits. The Circle Drive-in was located at the traffic circle in Long Beach, Ca. near where Java Lanes once stood on Pacific Coast Hwy.

This is where I fell in love with Horror movies. I went here when I was a child to see Friday the 13th with my parents and sister. It was great and it opened my mind to horror movies.

The Lakewood Drive In was at Carson and Cherry – the Lakewood walk-in was in the little shopping area at Carson and Lakewood.
