Any updates on this theater?

Maybe someone could reopen this theater?

The speaker pole has an RCA “Old Style” junction box on it. So the theater likely had an RCA sound system installed for the in-car speakers.

Interesting speaker. I’ve never seen or heard of this brand of drive-in speaker.

That’s an RCA “Old Style” junction box for the speakers. So I assume this theater had an all RCA sound system.

Didn’t Tom Moyer Theaters operate this theater at one time?

Can someone get some drone shots of the theater before it closes?

Looks like a person could reopen this theater because it’s still in decent condition.

I found the pictures I took of this theater back in September 2001. I’ve scanned them and added them here today.

Looks like the church has done an excellent job of maintaining the theater.

I’ve got some pictures of this theater. I’ll have to dig them out for scanning.

Looks like if the adjacent land was purchased, this could be an excellent twin screen drive-in theater.

According to this webpage, the theater will reopen on Thanksgiving Day:

According to their facebook page, the theater survived, but with some smoke damage. So it will be closed for a little while so they can get everything cleaned up. It looks to me like modern concrete construction and the huge parking lot helped to save this theater in my opinion.

I hope that when it is safe to do so, someone can check on the theater to see if it actually survived the fires.

I tried calling their showtimes phone number but all I got was a screech and a fast busy signal. I guess that means phone lines are down in their area.

Did this theater get caught in the big fire that destroyed the town of Paradise yesterday?

Too bad a perfectly good, busy theater got closed down and destroyed.

They sure managed to do a pretty good job of laying out the field for maximum amount of screens.

Wow! Looks like they did a great job. :)

Looks like a Brenkert BX-80 projector head and an RCA 9030 sound head installed on a Christie xenon console.
