What was the last movie you saw at the drive-in?

Fiesta Drive-In Theatre is located at 401 West Fiesta Drive in Carlsbad. The entrance is located near the intersection of San Jose Boulevard and Fiesta Drive. You can find details about their hours, admission, and current showings by visiting the drive-in’s Facebook page or Square website.
