The snack bar still exists only now serves as an Amazon van depot!
The address for this former drive in is 3251 National City Blvd, National City, CA 91950. Please update. Fond memories. I can still envision the giant emerald screen and its green trimmings!😢☺😍
According to Google Maps' city limits drawings, the Harbor site is actually in Chula Vista. Between 4th Avenue and San Diego Bay on the north side of the Sweetwater River, the Harbor’s outline is uniquely carved away from National City and retained by its neighbor to the south. Somebody did that on purpose.
Google Maps also uses National City as the site’s current mailing address, which means only that the 91950 post office services the site.
Adding another name, Boxoffice, Nov. 6, 1948: “Lou Berman and Tommy Huntington opened the Harbor Drive-In in Chula Vista November 3.”
Boxoffice, Oct. 28, 1963: “Sam Russo of San Diego has taken over the Harbor Drive-In in Chula Vista.”
This $250,000 ozoner launched November 3, 1949 by Tom Huntington of the Vogue and Seville Theatres. The 70' high and 150' wide tower was impressive.
The correct address is: E. 32nd St. & National City Blvd National City, CA, 91950
