Are they still using speakers?
Fred Thibodeau was also the longtime owner of the Skyline Drive-in Theater in Shelton, Wash.
Wow, extremely overgrown.
Wow! That’s a beautiful theater inside!
Status should be changed then from demolished to renovating.
I was never able to get inside the theater to take pictures. I could only get exterior photos taken. I haven’t been back to Seaside in several years. So the building did not get demolished? I’d like to see any interior pictures. Any chance the current owner could post some interior pictures here?
Their website has vanished. This is all I get:
HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.
As far as I know, they did not open.
Wow, this is great! I remember that sign. I thought it was gone for good when Act 3 theaters tore it down. I wish the drive in theater was still in operation.
Still have not yet opened for the season.
I guess it’s taking longer than expected. They still have not opened yet for the season.
Yes, the “G” stands for Ghossen, the family who built it.
The right hand storefront (as looking at the front of building) was a barbershop for many years. The left hand storefront was I believe a second hand or antique store.
Let me guess, the hole in the roof is right over the stage and has been leaking on all the backdrops and on the stage floor?
Kingsley Hall had been working on updating all the electrical wiring in the building and had some sort of wood pellet heater installed for heating the auditorium. By chance do you know what happened to the E-L-M-A letters on the sign? I know Kingsley also had a few security cameras setup to keep an eye on the rear doors of the building.
Any more updates? Did you purchase the theater?
Did it convert to large reels? Or did they use 20 minute reels throughout it’s life?
Yes I believe this is one of those late 80’s buildings. It had sloped floors. It was hard to find because they had to put up the marquee on busy 38th street so people could be directed to the theater.
Let me guess. The “renovation” will either be a Rite-Aid or a Walgreen’s.
Still closed and boarded up. No signs of any activity.
What an odd projection angle. The projection building is way off to the side.
Theater is temporarily closed until July 1 (approx) for installation of a new screen. Looks like it’ll be a very short season for them this year.
Picture shows the early use of “blast” speakers on the screen tower. This is the way the sound was distributed before the “in-car” speaker system was invented.
Didn’t this theater get expanded to two screens?
it would be interesting to see the field layout with an overhead view from a drone.
Are they still using speakers? Or have they converted to radio sound?
They get a video projector yet?
I’ve found and scanned my pictures of this theater from September 2001.
