History Of The Getty Drive-In

The Getty Drive-In was founded by John P. Getty, who was a prominent businessman and art collector. Getty believed that art was a civilizing influence in society, and he wanted to create a space where people could come together and enjoy the arts in a relaxed and informal setting. The Getty Drive-In was his way of bringing this vision to life.

Over the years, the Getty Drive-In has undergone many changes. In the 1960s, it was expanded to include four screens, making it one of the largest drive-in theaters in the country. In the 1980s, it was renovated to include a modern concession stand and updated projection equipment. And in the 2000s, it was converted to digital projection, allowing it to continue to show the latest movies.

Despite these changes, the Getty Drive-In has always remained true to its roots. It continues to offer a unique and nostalgic movie-going experience that is hard to find anywhere else. Families and friends can gather in their cars or on lawn chairs to watch the latest blockbusters or classic films under the stars.
