This historic drive-in movie theater on the famed Route 66 first opened in 1949. It inspired a scene at the Radiator Springs Drive-In Theatre during the credits of Pixar’s 2006 film, Cars. Here we see the characters watching car versions of previous Pixar movies, including Toy Car Story, Monster Trucks, Inc., and A Bug’s Life.

The drive-in is seen again briefly at the beginning of 2011’s Cars 2, this time showing The Incredimobiles, a play on the 2004 Pixar film, The Incredibles.
