It looks like this was open as early as 1947.

Used to live in Tacoma, and had friends who lived in the Polynesia apts. right behind the parking lot of Autoview. We used to sit on the back fence of the drive-in and watch the films. I probably saw Jaws 50 times while hanging out with friends back there. We were like ally cats on the back fence. :)

The police would come by, sometimes, to see what we were up to. As long as we didn’t cause any problems, they would let us stay, and even turned up a few speakers in the very back, so we could actually hear as well as watch.

We had a lot of fun hanging out there, on those warm summer nights, in the early 70’s.
