650 autos.

Located in what was once called Holly Lawn.

Opened in 1952?

Had a 3 or 4 room motel at the base of the screen!

More info or photos?

The snack bar was in the bottom of the screen tower and served the theatre patrons from the screen side and was open in the daylight hours and served from the street side through windows. There were picnic style tables on the street side. I have pictures if interested.
