Our History

The Crest Drive-in Movie Theater in Bakersfield, California opened its gates in 1963. Starting with just on screen, it became the place to be in Kern County. In 1977, the theater became so popular that they decided to add a second screen, enabling the theater to accommodate up to 1000 vehicles. The Drive-in gave fans the opportunity to watch a movie in privacy, but still have numerous people around enjoying one of the two features playing that night.

The Crest was able to keep the gates open for thirty-five years before having to close them forever in 1998. It was a sad time for Bakersfield. If you ask someone who grew up here in town, they can still remember the smell of popcorn drifting through the balmy summer nights.  

In 2003, the Crest was dismantled after being closed for five years. Fortunately for visitors and the community, the Bakersfield R.V. Resort was able to bring back a part of the amazing Crest Drive-in with its restaurant; The Crest Bar & Grill - a fine dining, full service restaurant for the community and RV park guests.
