Cinema on First and Barstow

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?

The cinema on First and Barstow was called Shemel's Cinema. I saw HR Puffinstuff, Hello Dolly, and many other wonderful films there.

Yep... then it became a hardware store. Before the show you could load up with junk from Rudy's... Guess I'm kind of a Headliner Kid too.
