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.
Building looks like it might still be standing.
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.
The address was 3480 Mission Avenue.
Building looks like it’s still there.
Two years and the address still hasn’t been updated.
Now a parking lot for Bally’s, CVS, and a supermarket.
There’s a giant high-rise on the site now.
Yet another parking lot.
Now a business and industrial park.
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.
Now demolished, Star Auto Body sits in place of the Gateway.
The City Terrace Cinema was where the church parking lot is now.
Address is 11126 Downey Avenue. Now operating as Popcorn Video.
Should be an a.k.a for the Plaza.
Just a parking lot now.
That’s a huge empty lot at that address now.
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.
