Fresno's Downtown Movie Palaces

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? Share your old Fresno theater memories here.

the white was the place to go on saturday. the kiddie shows had it all. my brother and I would get on the bus at michigan and fresno for 5 cents each. the show was 11 cents and some candies were 4 cents. then 5 cents to get back home. a whole 25 cents for the day. had cartoons, serials, the 2nd show and then the main cowboy movie. sometimes the guy would kiss his horse, not the girl. and sometimes even had stage things for us to participate in.
