Tower Theater

Who could forget the fabulous Crest or the Tower Theater? Fresno’s drive-ins were the most popular with teens, among them the Moon-Glow and the Sunset. The world’s largest outdoor screen was housed at the Sunnyside Drive-in. Did you hide in the trunk to save 50 cents or possibly steam up the car’s windows?

This photo was taken in 1987 when the Theater had just completed a restoration. They had a special event to honor the original architect: S CHARLES LEE who is 89 years old in this picture. The Tower Theater's owner, Dotty Abbate, presented Mr. Lee with a medallion which commemorated his contributions to art deco design.
