The Roadium, under which the drive-in operated as in 1950, should be listed as an a.k.a.

Very obviously a drive-in theatre lot, by the look of the aerial – possibly the snack bar still survives, nestled as it is amongst what appear to be shipping containers. There’s a swap meet adjacent this address, so it’d be interesting to go by and see what’s left.

Now a series of industrial buildings on empty lots shot through with endless desire lines.

There’s an empty lot with a diagonal angle to one of its corners, so that could still be the drive-in, just sleeping.

Looking at GoogleMaps, I realize that this is a duplicate listing for the Strand Theatre listing in Oxnard.

Street address of the theatre is Glassell, not Glassel.

If you go to that address – sorry for not noticing it earlier, ken mc – it looks like it’s actually four screens.

I can’t tell, but it seems like they just updated the old El Dorado building, which may itself be an upgrade of the Embassy.

Was this theatre also known as the Ocean Drive-In? Or is the mysterious Red’s Twin the Ocean Drive-In?

Was this known as the Cina-Car Drive-In at one point? Can’t imagine Culver City having two drive-ins.
