The Peninsula Drive-In opened in 1947 with a double feature of Shirley Temple in "Kiss and Tell" with Disney's "Make Mine Music". Initial capacity was 750 cars, with a 70-foot screen and admission prices of 60 cents for adults and 14 cents for kids. After closing in 1969, the city purchased the land and expanded neighboring Amarillo Park in 1973. Amarillo Park continued to expand and has now become Greer Park.
