Enjoy Some Favorite ‘80s Films at the Drive-In

Go Back To The Future. Or back to La Bamba, The Karate Kid or E.T. the Extraterrestrial.

Relive some of the great films of the ‘80s this summer as My Valley Pass presents four nights of memorable movies this August at the Pacific Winnetka All Stadium 21’s Summer Drive-In Nights benefiting the Valley Relics Museum.

Each film will be shown in a retro drive-in setting. Each evening features pre-show music, surprise guests, and themed entertainment. And dress in your favorite 80’s threads; there will be costume contests before each film with fun prizes donated by local valley businesses.

Each film was selected for its connection to the San Fernando Valley; from filming locations in neighborhoods such as Northridge, Granada Hills, and Pacoima or iconic landmarks such as the CSUN Matadome and the Cowboy Palace Saloon. Each movie is linked to the history of the valley and represents a moment and time in its development.

The Pacific Winnetka All Stadium 21 now sits where the Winnetka 6 Drive-In was located. It was the last drive-in to be built and the second-to-last to be torn down in the San Fernando Valley, and over twenty years later cars will once again fill the lot full of families and friends tuning in to watch a movie on the giant outdoor screen.

Pre-show entertainment begins at 7:30 p.m. and the movie screening begins at 8:30 p.m. each evening.

Ticket prices are $20 per person or a Family Pack of $60 for a car of 4 or more and can be purchased directly from MyValleyPass.com. Tickets will only be available at the door if there is still room, so it is recommend to purchase them in advance.

Concessions will be available for sale courtesy of Pacific Winnetka All Stadium 21.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Valley Relics Museum.

Located in Chatsworth, the Valley Relics Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of America’s most famous valley.
