San Pablo Auto Movies

Friday and Saturday nights brought
bonus feature late shows to the San Pablo Auto Movie
as well as other Richmond area drive-ins.

At left on April 2, 1954 the extra feature, promoted in this ad even ahead of the regular show, was a Realart Pictures reissue of Universal’s mediocre 1946 horror film “She-Wolf of London”.

Some weekends, long holiday weekends in particular, brought brought dusk-to-dawn movie marathons with four or five features running all night.

Free coffee and donuts were sometimes made available to those patrons still there for the final feature.

The five feature movie marathon advertised at right played in August 1955.

Thanks Johnny for the classic ads. Must have been a rough projectionist shift with all the film reels to change every 20 minutes for the Dusk To Dawn Show. I don’t think they had the 35mm platter system then.
