Sequoia Auto Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located a short distance east of Visalia on Highway 198. The Sequoia Auto Theatre opened on July 28, 1950, with a capacity for 500 cars. It was operated by Westland Theatres as a second run drive-in. An unusual feature was the position of the projection booth on top on the concession building. At the rear of the building was a playground and pony ride circle.
