Drive-In Short Reel Theatre.
3 people favorited this theater
As the name says it was short reels shown, not features. Cartoons, one reelers, news and short subjects were all that was shown. It was built right on the beach with the cars facing out to sea over the Gulf of Mexico. Bad thing was it was put right in Hurricane Alley it was opened only twenty days, before a huge hurricane blew it away. It was never rebuilt!
This was the third drive-in theatre to be built in the United States. It opened on July 5, 1934, and was owned by Louis P. Josserand, an architect from Houston, Texas, who also designed it.
