Since 2011, we have been hosting a drive-in experience in the Tucson area. Ever since the De Anza Drive-In closed in 2009, the original founder’s vision was to maintain Tucson’s drive-in culture and bring back a permanent location. We show a variety of movies at Medella Vina Ranch on a high-quality, 40ft inflatable screen with audio from a transmitter that you can listen to from your car on channel FM 103.1. As a small business, we’ve built from the ground up while constantly upgrading our equipment and ensuring the best customer experience we can provide. With everyone’s support, we can rebuild a drive-in again and have our vision come true.
