This was a run-of-the-mill drive in located in the North Torrance area towards Gardena, and a couple of blocks from El Camino College. It was opened in May 1949. In the 1960’s they began having swap meets and stopped showing movies completely in the 1980’s. The Roadium Open Air Market today is one of the largest of it’s type in California and has been a going concern for almost 40 years.
The marquee, screen tower and concession/projection booth buildings still stand and the concession area does a nice business. The speaker poles have been removed. In the late-1960’s-early-1970’s they ran primarily second run double bills and printed a weekly program flyer. In June 2019, movie screenings began again, but just on Friday evenings until the end of August.
