Boxoffice, April 2, 1949: “Garland West, veteran exhibitor in Buckhannon, W. Va., isn’t afraid of the wind blowing over the screen tower at his new West Drive-In because the pictures will be projected onto one side of the concrete block building illustrated here. … This area will be painted white and used without plaster or other surfacing.”
