Huh? The picture shows the back of a screen (does not look like it was two-sided, as the screen was supposed to have been at this theater), and a section of a parking lot and what looks picnic tables.

From the July 2, 1955 issue of Billboard, as part of a note on Loew’s acquisition:

“The Normandy features a miniature Seaboard Silver Meteor, free donkey rides, and a five-acre playground.”

The Feb. 5, 1950 Boxoffice had a two-page story about the new Normandy, “a twin drive-in theatre with two identical screens and identical programs. One show starts 20 minutes after the other since one screen faces west and the other east”
