The street side of the screen was dark colored, and the name was in neon with neon decorations on either side. The whole thing sat slightly downhill from the Azalea/90 intersection and at night it REALLY looked impressive.

The Auto Sho opened in 1950? Boxoffice, Aug. 1, 1953: “"Flying saucers” descended on audiences at the Auto Sho Drive-In Theatre during the theatre’s third anniversary. The saucers were sailed from the top of the concession stand. “Lucky” saucers contained $20 and $10 bills. There were a total of 350 prizes. Free lollipops were passed out to the kids."
