The Terrace Drive-In opened on October 18 1951 with Loretta Young in “Half Angel” & Dan Dailey in “A Ticket to Tomahawk”. It had a capacity for 1,418 cars and 100 seats for walk-in patrons. I have been given a wonderful 1950’s B & W photo of the Terrace’s patio and concession area. It was built in the style of a pueblo. The projection booth is housed in a smaller second story. There are four signs accross the front saying “hot dogs”, “cold drinks”, “candies”, and “popcorn”.
“Terrace” is spelled out in script on a separate sign that is as wide as the projection booth. And as any of us who were lucky enough to have gone to any of the old drive-ins would expect, there are metal lawn chairs out front. In May 1953 a second screen was added.
