Humuhumu’s description

Mission Tiki Drive-In was originally the Mission Drive-In, which opened in 1956. De Anza took it over and started work on turning it into a tiki drive-in in 2005. The tikification was primarily performed by carver and artist Tiki Diablo, and includes plenty of tikis and Polynesian-themed decor. Ticket booths have A-frame tops with thatch, and the refreshments area has plenty of large tikis and tiki masks, and bamboo-lined walls. Mission Tiki's logo tiki is holding a box of popcorn. In addition to the regular schedule of drive-in movies, Mission Tiki hosts special events similar to those that have proved popular at the the De Anza-owned (but non-tiki) Starlight Drive-In in Atlanta.

its a fun theater about as tiki as you can get with a drive in theater if you want to get the Diablo limited mug they have holding the popcorn be prepaired to pay a 150$ a mug thats way outta my price range and apperantly others to because they have ALOT left. 7$ for two movies so good deal there i brought my own food and drink but the food did look good. I will be returning i recommend a radio run on batteries to save you the trouble of killing your car battery.

I have only gone during the weekends when they have their swap meet. I have found some very cool vintage stuff there.

This is a great drive-in! At $7 for a double-feature of first-run movies how can you go wrong? If you just want to take a peek at the place, swap meets are held during the day four days a week. Downsides are you'll miss the tiki lighting effects and also the gift shop is only open at night. While there I was hoping to buy one of the cute mugs with the popcorn-holding tiki but could not. By the way, whoever came up with the popcorn-holding tiki is a genius. What a fun collision of primitive and contemporary.
