Located at Kern Avenue and First Street. The Hecker Pass Drive-In was opened around August 1949. This drive-in had space for 490 cars and was owned by J. Peters. The theater was replaced by a Taco Bell restaurant, although the ticket booth was still standing as of 2003. Condominiums have since been built on the site

An aside in the Sept. 3, 1949 issue of BoxOffice mentioned a sighting of owners Alex Balanesi and Stuart Fletcher and manager Charles Gubser “of the recently opened Hecker Pass Drive-In”.
