Online? Bring Back the Drive In’s!

Tucson was a bit Nostalgic on Saturday Night as a strong turnout from the Community showed up to support efforts by the Cactus Drive in Theater Foundation to bring back a Drive In Theater to the area.

The last drive in theater, The DeAnza Drive in closed in October of 2009 after almost 10 yeasrs of speculating of closures but it held fast to the fact that arizonans enjoyed the night air and watching a movie from their vehicles. Land, a valuable commodity, won and the theater closed down.

The Cactus Drive In Theater hopes to bring that tradition back and promises more fund raising efforts like the one Saturday which showed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, a homage to the Deanza which showed the same film on its closing night.

You can log onto for more information, or to donate to the foundation which hopes to purchase a parcel of land for a permanent drive in theater.
