Chatsworth, CA - It’s a flashback fan fest for valley residents and guests as My Valley Pass presents four nights of entertainment at the Lake Balboa Complex pop up experience: Summer Drive-In Nights benefiting the Valley Relics Museum and the Martial Arts History Museum. Beginning on August 4, the event will be featuring E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Back to the Future, The Karate Kid, and La Bamba in a retro drive-in setting, each evening begins with pre-show music, surprise guests, and themed entertainment. Don’t forget to come dressed in your favorite 80’s threads as there will be costume contests before each film with fun prizes donated by local valley businesses.

Each film was carefully curated for its connection to the San Fernando Valley; from filming locations in neighborhoods such as Northridge, Granada Hills, and Pacoima or iconic landmarks such as the CSUN Matadome and the Cowboy Palace Saloon, each movie is linked to the history of the valley and represents a moment and time in its development.
