The single-screen Starlite Drive-In in the Green District of Roseburg, OR. opened June 23, 1954 with “Beachhead”. On December 25, 1971 a 300-seat walk-in cinema was added onto the snack bar. When it was sold to a Native American tribe around 1995, a clause required it to not show movies for 20 years.
A veterans group then rented and refurbished the walk-in, into their meeting hall. I don’t know if the seats are intact or not. The drive-in screen stood until 2007, the marquee and ticket booth remain. I the later years, the theater had radio broadcasts, rather than pole speakers.
The theater is in a somewhat new industrial area and will most likely end up being demolished for new construction.
