Repair Ceres Drive-in Marquee

Ceres Drive-In Served the Modesto community from 1947-early 2000’s.  Drive-ins and car culture are a huge part of Modesto area scene, made famous by the movie American Graffiti by George Lucas.

 At one time 5 drive-ins were in the Modesto area, now only one remains - and it needs your help to come back to life!

Since it closed, the drive-in became a junk yard and suffered fires and damage.
The south screen, snack bar building, And bathrooms have been restored - we just need some help to finish the job, including fencing and the original entry NEON sign.

Planned opening is late September 2020!
