KenLayton commented about Twin City Drive In on Oct 2, 2013 at 7:17 pm

The only remnants of the theater today is the asphalt driveway entrance and many of the original trees are still standing. The property is now owned by the Western Washington Fairgrounds and is used for storage. The front entryway of the theater now has a barbed wire fence stretched across it. The entire theater marquee and readerboard have been completely removed.

I have plenty of pictures of this theater in my collection. All my pictures were taken after the theater closed and had been through a couple of major floods.

This is what happens when you forget to hang the speaker back on the post before driving away.

The other side of the sign says “Next Left” in place of the word Theater.

That picture appears to be from the Skyline Drive-in Theater in Shelton, Washington.

They should have just bought a DVD player and cheapo Best Buy video projector.

Telephone lines at the theater are also damaged from the lightning strike. Phone lines are down right now.

Evidently the electrical storm did damage the new video projector and all shows are cancelled until further notice.

I’d want to see films in their original Cinerama projection process on film not digital video projection.

This is a run-of-the-mill 1980’s vintage theater if I recall correctly.

Boy, all those restrictions sound like right here in Olympia, Washington. We must have gotten our city council from you guys.
