On the site of old Curtis Field, on the Sunrise Highway in Valley Stream, NY has been opened the first open air automobile movie theater of its kind in New York State. The 12-acre tract accommodates 500 cars at a performance. The principal of the theater is based on a series of semicircular ramps on which the fronts of cars are elevated and the rears depressed so that occupants of cars can see above the tops of machines closer to the screen. The photo shows an attendant serving refreshments during a performance.
