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

The info I have for Red’s. Originally opened in 1951 or ‘52 as the Ocean drive-in. Bought by 'Red’ Thomas in 1980 and changed names to Red’s Crescent drive-in. They bought out the Terrace drive-in up north in 1959, and that was the first ‘Red’s’ drive-in. That drive-in Brookings closed down the fall of 1980 due to windstorm. Both screens blew down & they were only able to rebuild in Crescent City.

Red’s Crescent is now closed for the 2015 season. They were not able to convert to digital and I doubt they can open up next year. According to a Facebook post, the land is set to become a storage facility.
