The Facebook page SLOpages pointed out an old youtube link of a video featuring San Luis Obispo’s Sunset Drive-in and its owner Larry Rodkey. It’s nice to hear about the now 60-year-old drive-in theater from the manager himself, so be sure to check it out.

Here is a map of the movie theaters in San Luis Obispo. This is not just any map, for it tells the location of now disappeared theaters such as the Obispo and The Elmo. Hope it gives a good idea of how much San Luis Obispo is (and has been) rich in movie theaters.
I have also added it at the end of the timeline. Click here to see it.
Hey, here are a few pictures I made into a slideshow with some information. Hope you enjoy!
On Monday evening, I went down to the Sunset drive-in theater. As I arrived closer to the theater, I was surprised to hear a big silence, even as the pictures were flickering on the screen. It was different from what I imagined: Some giant speakers with booming sounds in the night.
It was the first time I went to a drive-in theater, so frankly, I didn’t know what to expect.
