When approaching from Nipton, a Jackal gang leader and several Jackal members may be found near the screen, and various mole rats may spawn at the location's outskirts. The location is directly south-west of Nipton, and the ruins may easily be mistaken as an extension of the town from a distance.
With the Old World Blues add-on installed, in the center of this area is a crashed satellite with an American flag on it. At midnight, the crashed satellite will begin a display on the drive-in screen at which time the player character may activate the Old World Blues add-on.
- A closed train tunnel is located almost due south of the Mojave Drive-in. The platform area has a single lottery ticket on the ground in front of the maintenance door, though the door itself is boarded up and inaccessible.
- The Jackal gang members and leader will move to the nearby location of Bradley's shack if the player character is undetected.
- The Jackal Gang members are actually from the Nipton Road Pit Stop, traveling en route to Bradley's shack.
- The words "Joshua Graham lives" and "The Burned Man walks" have been written on the screen.
The Mojave Drive-in appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
