The Frontier drive-in theatre was originally one screen, adding the second screen, later. At the time it was trendy for drive-ins to add a 2nd screen, IF the lot was big enough; then having additional costs for the second projector and screen, as well as re-doing the entire lot, etc. In the long run, these added screens(some added a few more, space permitting) were a bit confusing, especially when it was a then, the policy& custom to run DOUBLE FEATURES-(—WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE?) However, the MIDWAY drive-in down the street, was San Diego’s FIRST DRIVE-IN THEATRE, and my favorite of the two.
